How do you use the Codes in your practice?

We spent the day at Oranges & Lemons Children’s Nursery, Technology Park, Dundee to find out how the SSSC Code of Practice for Social Service Workers reinforces their day to day work.

Watch our video to find out how the staff work to each of the six Codes.

How do you use the Codes?

Do you use it in supervision or staff appraisals? For post registration training and learning? Or something else?

Send us details of how you use the Codes in your organisation and we’ll share it with others.


Living the Codes

Remember there is a Living the Codes category in the Scottish Social Services Awards which looks for:

  • creative approaches to promoting and using the codes which show you are living the values and principles which underpin them
  • evidence of how you are using the codes to make a difference to staff or people using services
  • a real understanding of what the codes mean and what can be achieved by following the good practice they are encouraging.

The deadline for entries to the 2019 Scottish Social Services Awards is 6.00pm on 15 February. Find out more and enter online
