Demand For Social Workers
The SSSC have produced reports on demand for social workers every two years since 2012.
We have published the Demand For Social Workers report.
This report examines data from a range of sources on the supply and demand for social workers in Scotland. It begins with admissions and completions from social work training courses and looks at the numbers who then register with the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) as newly qualified social workers (NQSWs). It then considers the total number on the Register and the numbers employed as practising social workers (PSWs) by local authorities. Sections 4 and 5 consider drivers of demand and projected numbers of social workers required in the future. The final section provides some conclusions and suggestions for action.
