The Children's Services Workforce 2018 Tables.

08 Apr 2020

These tables look in detail at the children's services workforce in Scotland. 

Children’s services account for over one-quarter of the Scottish social service workforce and have the following sub-sectors:

  • adoption service
  • child care agency
  • childminding
  • day care of children
  • fieldwork service (children)
  • fostering service
  • residential child care
  • school care accommodation.

Three of these sub-sectors can be broken down into more detail. Shown in bold above, they are: day care of children (DCC), residential child care (RCC) and school care accommodation (SCA). We give an overview which includes all of these sub-sectors and breakdowns, but focus in detail only on three sub-sectors which can be split further. We also do a parallel analysis of early learning and childcare (ELC) services, which are a subset of DCC services.
