More than one job that requires registration
If you have more than one job that requires registration with the SSSC, you must register for each role you carry out. This means you may have to be on more than one part of the Register. When you apply for registration there are instructions and guidance on how to do this.
Do you work in more than one service?
If you work in more than one service you may need to apply for registration on more than one part of the SSSC Register. This is because your registration is based on your role and how that service is registered with the Care Inspectorate.
Check how your service is registered
Your manager should know how the service is registered with the Care Inspectorate but you can check on the Care Inspectorate’s website.
All you need is the service name or postcode.
In the example below, you can see that ABC Supported Living is registered with the Care Inspectorate as a housing support service and a support service. If the support service is care at home and you work in both services you should select the appropriate Register parts i.e. Support Worker in Care at Home Services and Support Worker in a Housing Support Services. If you only work in one of the services, you only need to apply for that part.
Definitions of Register parts
You can visit this page to check what part of the Register you should register with the SSSC under and also what category of worker you would register as.
What happens if my application isn’t correct?
If we receive an application that isn’t correct, it could take longer for us to complete your application as we will need to gather more information from you and your employer.
This could mean you may not gain registration in time, or for the correct parts of the Register, which could affect your ability to work.
