Scottish Social Services Workforce Data
On this page you can find announcements about publication dates and updates about our work.
We are pleased to announce that we now publish data from the SSSC register on this site.
The Care Inspectorate and the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) have published new figures on the levels of staff vacancies in Scotland’s social care services.
As with the previous report, this report provides a national overview of vacancies and recruitment difficulties reported by care services to the Care Inspectorate, the body which registers and inspects all social care services.
The report is available here
These tables look in detail at the adults' services workforce in Scotland. They supplement data already published in the Scottish Social Service Sector: Report on 2018 Workforce Data.
We are pleased to announce that the breakdown of LA post types for 2018 was published on Thursday 19th December (available here). The spreadsheets present headcount and WTE (whole time equivalent) data of all filled posts in local authority social work services where those employed do not work in a registered care service. This therefore covers staff working primarily in field social work services.
