Scottish Social Services Council
The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) is the regulatory body for the social care workforce.
Housing support managers are now required to register with the SSSC and the register is open for supervisors. Managers and supervisors new to post have six months from the date they start to gain registration.
You can find the definitions for this register here.
The register opened for supervisors in 2014 for required registration in 2017 and for workers in 2017 for required registration in 2020. The following table summarises the workers that require registration and when this needs to be done:
