Scottish Social Services Workforce Data
A career in social services
This briefing focuses on the challenges around supporting individuals to start or develop a career in social services.
SSSC Vision is a new series of briefings aimed at social service employers. Each edition has information and analysis on important themes, topics and issues highlighted in our latest Social Services Sector in Scotland: Workforce Skills Report 2011/2012 (WSR).
The WSR analyses the current and future social services workforce challenges in Scotland. The report also outlines the key skills issues reported by employers, people who use services, carers and other stakeholders. These issues were discussed at a series of events and meetings across Scotland. Individuals were also invited to complete an online questionnaire.
The purpose of these briefings is to focus on selected themes identified in the WSR. Each edition ends with a section focusing on what this means for employers and how the SSSC can support your service.
