Your responsibilities as a registered person

Information on what your responsibilities are once you are registered with us.

Post registration training and learning (PRTL)

Training and learning is a requirement for all registered people. You have to complete 15 days or 90 hours of training and learning during each three year period of registration.

Everyone must keep a record of their post registration training and learning. You can do this anytime in your SCWonline. You’ll need to record:

  • the date
  • how long it was for
  • a brief description of how training contributed to your professional development.

Keep us informed of any changes

A registered person must inform the registration team of any changes in their information. Do this as soon as possible. Not telling us may result in being referred to a fitness to practise panel.

You must keep us informed of changes to your:

  • name
  • title
  • employment
  • home address
  • registration with another regulatory body
  • criminal record
  • health record
  • contact details.

You can view and update your details at any time in your SCWonline account in the ‘My Profile’ section.

The consolidation programme

The consolidation programme is a requirement for all social workers who qualified after 1st April 2016 . It must completed in the first three years of registration.

This programme is the first part of continuing professional education and learning (CPEL).

We no longer supply certificates of registration. But, you’ll receive a granted letter confirming your registration.

If you need evidence that you are registered you can get an up to date record from SCWonline –‘Proof of registration’ or you can check your name on the Register below.
