Scottish Social Services Workforce Data
2019-2021 SVQ tables
The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) supports workforce planning in the social service sector by publishing information on the sector’s workforce. This includes data on those undertaking qualifications relevant to work in the sector.
These tables provide SVQ provision data separately for social services and healthcare (primarily Adult services) and Children and Young People frameworks as well as the proportion of SVQ activity made up by Modern Apprenticeships (MAs) in Scotland.
As well as the 2019-21 data these tables also show historic data (2016-17 onwards) in order to allow comparison.
These tables present a detailed analysis of the entries (registrations) and awards (certifications) in relevant SVQs for the Adults and Children and Young People frameworks. The data used in the tables are is provided by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).
The SSSC is the Scottish partner in Skills for Care & Development, which is the sector skills council for the social service sector. As such the SSSC is responsible for approving MA centres and dealing with all registrations and certifications in the two relevant frameworks. The data for this is held on the MA Online system, which is managed on behalf of all sector skills councils by the Federation for Industry Sector Skills & Standards (FISSS).
The data tables and charts in this report are available in Microsoft Excel (.xls x) and OpenDocument Spreadsheet (.ods) format. The provision of the data in these formats is intended to facilitate its analysis and re-use.
