Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

Section 44(1) of the Regulation of Care (Scotland) Act 2001 (2001 asp 8) requires the Scottish Social Services Council to maintain a register of social workers, social service workers of any other description prescribed and persons participating in a course or employed in a position probationary to becoming either a social worker or social service worker of a qualified description.

This Order amends the Regulation of Care (Social Service Workers) (Scotland) Order 2005 (S.S.I. 2005/318) by inserting two additional descriptions of social service worker for this purpose, namely the manager of an adult day care service and the manager of a care home service for adults. These expressions are also defined.

(1)

2001 asp 8. Section 77(1) of the Act defines “prescribed” as meaning “prescribed by order made by the Scottish Ministers”.

(2)

Established by section 43 of the Act.

(4)

Section 2(2) of the Act defines “support service”. Services have been excepted from this definition by S.S.I. 2002/120 as amended by S.S.I. 2003/571.

(5)

Section 2(3) of the Act defines “care home service”. No services are currently excepted from the definition by Regulations made under section 2(3)(d) of the Act.
