HCPC social work re-registration

The window of time to renew your registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) opens on 1 September.

How can Community Care help?

1. Keep up to date with relevant events in the news: Read a Community Care article

2. Use an academic guide on Inform to brush up your understanding of research or case law

3. Attend a conference

4. Use our CPD log tool to keep track of your progress and record activities that count towards your continuing professional development

This will be the first time social workers have renewed in the new system since the registration and regulation of social workers in England changed on 1 August 2012, when the Health and Care Professions Council took over responsibility for the social care register.

This changed the way that continuing professional development (CPD) is approached. Alongside the renewal of social workers’ registration, the HCPC will be auditing the CPD profiles of a random sample of 2.5% of all the social workers in England.

Any social worker who does not complete the re-registration process by 30 November will no longer be able to practise legally as a social worker. Make sure you understand how to show your continuing professional development and complete your renewal online using our guides below:
