Publications

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.
