The SSSC compulsory registration dates and information:
This means that all Managers, Supervisors and Practitioners in care home services for adults should now be registered with the SSSC. Support workers will be required to register in the next couple of years.
Managers, supervisors and practioners new to post have six months from the date they start in the post to gain registration with the SSSC.
When the Care Commission inspects your service they will check to see if workers are registered and if the service has a training plan in place.
