Employers responsibilities


Employers have a responsibility to ensure that their social care and social work staff are:

– Registered with the Social Care Council

– Taking appropriate and timely action to maintain their registration by paying annual fees

– Undertaking learning and development to meet their Post Registration Training and Learning requirements and are recording this learning

– Renewing their registration as it becomes due

All social care and social work employing organisations need to maintain a list of authorised endorsers who will have access to the Employer Portal via their Social Care Council online account.  To nominate an endorser or remove an existing endorser from the list please contact

From the Employer Portal endorsers can view information about open applications, monitor the registration status of their staff by having access to dates of fees or renewals due and a number of other features.
