This file allows you to interactively investigate data on practising social workers employed by local authorities. It uses data from our LA Post Types publication and adds in some contextual population data from National Records of Scotland. Guidance and background notes are included within the file.
These 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. The data published includes a breakdown of the numbers of different people and posts across the whole of Scotland as well as by individual local authorities.
This spreadsheet contains information about the Social Services
Workforce collected from services regulated by the Care Inspectorate
(via its Annual Returns in December) and from the annual December Local
Authority Social Work Services Staffing Return.
