Scottish Social Services Workforce Data
SVQs in the Scottish Social Service Sector 2015
This is the seventh in a series of annual reports on Scottish Vocational Qualifications provision in Scotland, produced regularly for the purposes of workforce planning.
The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) seeks to know more about the workforce and is keen to have accurate information about the qualifications which employees are undertaking and achieving. This paper sets out information which we hope will assist education and training providers, employers, employees and other partners involved in workforce development activities.
The report presents a detailed analysis of the entries (registrations) and awards (certifications) in relevant Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs) for the calendar years 2013 to 2015, including trends in registrations by quarter. Information is also provided on annual trends in registrations and certifications from 2006 to 2015. The data used in this report is provided on a quarterly basis by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and covers new registrations and new certifications issued.
