Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC)

SSSC is the regulator for the social work, social care, and early years workforce in Scotland.

Their work means the people of Scotland can count on social work, social care, and early years services being provided by a trusted, skilled and confident workforce.


SSSC protect the public by registering social workers, social care and early years workers, setting standards for their practice, conduct, training, and education, and by supporting their professional development. Where people fall below the standards of practice and conduct they investigate and take action.

Social workers are expected to do 90 hours PRTL (Post Registration Training & Learning) per annum.
