How do I register?

It’s easy to register with us using a MySSSC account. Simply create an account on the MySSSC login page.

To set up your account you will need:

  • a personal email address
  • your National Insurance number.

Once you create your account, we will send you an email with a link to validate your online account. Check your spam or junk folder if it doesn’t arrive.

Completing your application

It is useful to have the following ready before you start.

Once you have answered all questions, you will be asked to select someone in your organisation to endorse your application. Once they have endorsed your application, we will email to let you know. You can then pay your application fee and submit your form in MySSSC.

If you need help with your application, you will find more details on our help with Register part, fees and qualifications page.

What happens next?

We’ll email to let you know we’ve got your application. It can take up to three months to process your application. We will contact you by email if we need more information, so please check your emails. We’ll email you to let you know when you are registered.

Applying if you’ve been removed by fitness to practise

If you’ve been removed from our Register following a fitness to practise investigation, you must complete a Restoration Application Form rather than using MySSSC.

Please email to ask for a form. Read our Restoration Factsheet and Restoration Application Guidance for more information.
