Scottish Social Services Workforce Data
Our workforce data, information and intelligence publications are all available from this section of the web-site.
Please note that there has been a change to the way in which the Scottish Social Services Council refers to the sector that it works within. Previous workforce intelligence reports and publications have used the terminology of ‘social services workforce’ and ‘social services sector’. This has now changed and the terminology used by the Scottish Social Services Council is now ‘social service workforce’ and ‘social service sector’. It should be noted that the Scottish Social Services Council regards the two terms as synonymous. The change does not indicate any change to the boundaries of the sector or to the areas of the SSSC’s responsibilities, these remain as before. It is simply a change to the language used.
Intelligence, issue two. Good labour market information is vital for employers providing social services as it highlights key issues and is essential to plan for the social services workforce for the future. The data plays an important role in helping employers to undertake effective workforce planning and to improve their benchmarking processes.
This report brings together data on the social services sector’s workforce from two key sources to provide an up to date picture of those in paid employment in the sector, whether employed by a public, private or voluntary service provider.
Intelligence, issue one. In this edition of intelligence, we look at migrant workers in the Scottish social services workforce. Using evidence from lots of sources, this edition will provide you with intelligence on key skills and social service workforce issues.
