Paying your fees
We will continue to accept payments for fees, but we won’t remove you from the Register if you are unable to pay your annual fee on time. We will contact you at a later date if your fee remains due. You can find information on how to pay here.
Note: There is no fee for joining the temporary social worker register.
Renewing your registration
Most social service workers have to renew their registration after five years. Social workers are registered for three years.
We will continue to accept renewal applications, but if you don’t apply to renew your registration on time, we won’t remove you from the Register. We will contact you at a later date to renew.
Do you have a registration condition to gain a qualification?
When a condition is due to expire we usually seek information about your qualification. For those with a qualification condition expiring at this time we will give a further 12 months before asking for this information. You can carry on working as normal.
People who have been removed from our Register for not completing a qualification
Anyone who has been removed from our Register for not completing their qualification can apply and we can look at putting them back on.
If someone previously left work (and the Register) because they were approaching the end of the period they were required to gain qualifications, you can re-employ these workers. They will have the normal period in which to apply for registration, which is now 12 months.
