You do not need to hold a qualification to work in social services in order to get registered.

Following the Brexit transition period ending on 31 December 2020, the SSSC no longer assesses non UK qualifications presented for registration on any function-based part of the register. Instead, we will require applicants to achieve the benchmark qualifications for their role.

You can continue to register with us and will be required to gain the relevant benchmark qualification.

More information about this can be found here on our website.
