The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) is the regulator for the social service workforce in Scotland. Our work means the people of Scotland can count on social services being provided by a trusted, skilled and confident workforce. We protect the public by registering social service workers, setting standards for their practice, conduct, training and education and by supporting their professional development. Where people fall below the standards of practice and conduct we can investigate and take action.
The SSSC registers key groups of social service workers in Scotland. This includes people working in social work, social care and early years.
MySSSC is a secure site from SSSC that is available to people who want to apply for registration, people currently registered, employers and university contacts.
In this section, you can find information about our current consultations and our responses to other organisations' consultations.
