If you’re employed in more than one social service role, on two different parts of our Register, you need to register both roles with us.
Until now, when workers were employed in two roles in the same type of setting we told you to register with us on your ‘higher’ role. Here are examples:
- If you have two roles; one as a support worker in a day care of children service and the other as a practitioner in a day care of children service you would register as a practitioner.
- If you had two roles; one as a practitioner in a care home service for adults and the other as a supervisor in a care home service for adults you registered as a supervisor.
We’ve found that this can cause an issue with your registration because if you end your employment in your higher role you would no longer be registered for your other role.
This has highlighted a situation that we don’t want workers or employers to be in, so we are asking you to make sure you’re registered on each part of the Register that relates to each of the roles you carry out.
What do I do?
Please check your MySSSC account for details of your current registration. If you need to register an additional role because you have two different jobs, you can apply for the additional registration through your MySSSC account.
Do I have to pay another fee?
You do not have to pay another application fee but will pay whichever fee is higher when your next annual fee is due.
What difference does this make?
By registering your different jobs on each part of the Register you can tell us about changes to one employment without having any adverse effect on your other employment and ability to work in your other role.
