Over a third of social workers still to renew before the 30th of November renewal deadline.

As of 25 November 2022, 62,156 social workers had renewed their registration, 63% of those who need to do so, said Social Work England. Anyone who is removed but wants to continue practising will need to apply to have their registration restored, at a cost of £135.

Social Work England said: 

“Thank you to the tens of thousands of social workers who have applied to renew their registration so far. We cannot advise social workers strongly enough to complete their renewal application as soon as possible and not leave it until the deadline. Anybody who has not completed all three steps to renew by midnight on Wednesday 30 November will no longer be able to practise.

“Please check that you have completed all three steps of the process. People receive an email confirmation when they complete each step. Once they have completed all steps their online account will show each step as green and show it is completed. If anybody needs guidance and support with the process there is extensive information on our website.”
