Scottish Social Services Workforce Data
Using SSSC registration data to examine workforce movements
Part two of the National Workforce Plan for Health and Social Care sets out current and future workforce challenges and identifies several recommendations.
We are leading work to identify how to improve career opportunities along with relevant training and education to support the workforce.
This data analysis is a longitudinal piece of work and we intend to expand our collaborative and explorative approach with the sector to enhance the process and ultimately the usefulness of the findings.
Using SSSC registration data to examine workforce movements focuses on movements of the workforce to improve our understanding of the flow of workers between different parts of the sector and what this indicates about the career paths people take.
This is the first time we’ve analysed registration data to explore movement of the workforce. Although it doesn’t cover all parts of the social service sector it does include major service categories and offers a unique and authoritative perspective on entry and progression.
