To help you check what part of the Register your workers should register on we have useful documents that list the definitions for all parts of the SSSC Register.
Listed by category, you can use our guide to check what part of the Register your employees should be registering on.
Workers should register according to the role they are undertaking rather than the qualifications they hold. As the SSSC is not able to assess what role a worker is undertaking, it is up to you as the employer to look at the job description and roles and decide which register part it best fits.
If after reading the definitions you’re still not sure what part of the Register your employees should apply for, you should discuss this with your Care Inspector. Your Care Inspector will have an understanding of the structure of your service and the role your employees are carrying out against the role definitions on our website.
We’ve produced a frequently asked questions document with the Care Inspectorate to help answer some common questions about SSSC registration. This will be useful for employers, providers and social service workers.
