After you have set up your account we will send you an email to validate your account. Click on the link in the email, you can then log in and begin your application.
Make sure you have the following details ready before you start to make the process quick and easy:
Please answer all of the application questions, have your application endorsed by a countersignatory from your employer, pay your fee and submit it to us online.
It can take up to three months to approve an application. We will contact you if you have missed out any information and it may take longer for us to approve your application.
Please note a Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme membership is mandatory for registration.
When you’ve completed the application form you need to get it countersigned by an authorised countersignatory. You can find a list of the people in your organisation on your MySSSC account.
When submitting your form you also need to pay the correct fee. If you don’t pay the fee we won’t be able to process it.
Fees depend on your role and the part of the Register you are on. There is an application fee and an annual fee.
If you’ve been removed from our Register following a fitness to practise investigation you must complete an Restoration Application Form rather than through MySSSC. To request a Restoration Application Form please email email@example.com. Please read our Restoration Factsheet and Restoration Application Guidance for more information.
