NISCC announce roadshow events on Standards of Conduct and Practice

Written by The Editorial Team

The Northern Ireland Social Care Council (NISCC) is holding a number of information roadshows during October to provide registrants and employers with information about the new Standards of Conduct and Practice.

The new Standards of Conduct and Practice will be launched on 30 September 2015 and will become effective from 1 November 2015.

The Standards will replace the Code of Practice for Social Care Workers and form the core regulatory framework for the social work and social care workforce. The NISCC stress the importance that all registrants and employers attend one of the events to find out what the Standards mean in the context of their day to day work.

As there are separate Standards for social workers and social care workers, two sessions will be offered at each venue to target both registrant groups. Employers are welcome to attend either or both sessions dependent on the staff group/s they employ.

The Standards will be available to view in various formats on the NISCC website shortly and printed copies will be distributed to every registrant.

  • These events are free to attend but places must be booked in advance
  • Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Tea/coffee will be available
