About the event
Come along to one of two free events we’re holding in Edinburgh on Tuesday 27 August 2019.
Learn more about the journey and future of SSSC registration, what fitness to practise really means and how we can help you with your continuous learning and development.
This event is about you. We want our relationship to be a good one. We’ll give you the information you need for your registration and role and you can give us your views and ask us questions too.
What you can expect
SSSC Chief Executive, Lorraine Gray will welcome you and give an overview of the workshops and what we’re doing in the wider sector at the moment. You’ll get the chance to talk to Lorraine at the end of the event.
You can choose to attend two of our workshops then browse our marketplace. Here you’ll get the chance to meet staff from across the SSSC for support, ask questions and find out more about our free learning and other resources we have to offer.
You can earn an Open Badge
By attending the event you’ll be able to gain an Open Badge to recognise your learning from the event. You can use Open Badges towards your post registration training and learning.
Who is the event for?
This event is aimed primarily at SSSC registered workers, however it may be of interest to managers and employers who don’t register with us.
You can attend two workshop sessions. Please indicate your preference of workshops, we’ll do our best to accommodate your choices. Spaces will be allocated on a first-come basis. The workshops are:
Registration – our future together
The sector is changing and we’d like to support you with those changes. We will share our registration journey and want to hear about your experience of registration so far so we can work together to improve.
Come and meet our friendly Registration Team who are happy to help answer your questions.
Fitness to practise – what does it mean?
Come along to find out more about the Codes of Practice, in practice. What do the Codes mean to you? This session is an opportunity to share examples of good practice and to bring the Codes to life. An element of the workshop will put a spotlight on social media in relation to your fitness to practise… to tweet or not to tweet?
Redesigning post registration training and learning (PRTL)
We’re reviewing our approach to post registration training and learning (PRTL). We want to make sure what we ask of you is clear, proportionate and helps show how your learning is making a positive difference to your practice.
This workshop will discuss the findings of the review so far and ask your views on how we can work together to improve the system.
As part of our role in promoting learning, we support the use and development of practice guidance for social service workers. In 2019/20 we will identify what already exists and raise awareness of this, work with stakeholders to identify any gaps, and establish a plan for developing new guidance.
Join us at this interactive workshop to discuss what kind of guidance you need to support your practice – the subject areas, what it might look like, and how you’d like us to work with you to support its use.
