Our Registration Rules (the Rules) have been updated. The Rules set out how we go about registering people working in social services.Â
There are changes that may affect you.
- We are changing how we communicate with you. The biggest change you will notice is that from 1 April, we will stop sending your fee invoices by post and weâ€™ll send them by email instead.
- There is a change to the fee for assessing non-UK qualifications for social service workers with European Economic Area (EEA) recognition rights. The fee has changed from Â£125 to Â£320.Â If the qualification is assessed as not being equivalent to our criteria, some applicants can then opt to take an aptitude test for which we are introducing a charge of Â£640 for function-based register parts and Â£790 for social work tests.
