We’re currently updating the register
This means that some social workers may still have a ‘registered until’ date of 30 November 2021 whilst the register is updated. If your registration status has not been updated yet, you can continue to practise as a social worker whilst the register is being updated.
If your registration has not been renewed and your status is now ‘No longer registered – failure to renew’ you must not practise as a social worker. If you want to return to the register, you must apply to restore your registration through your online account.
We're currently experiencing high volumes of enquiries. If you have any questions, please read more about what happens after you apply to renew your registration.
