Scottish Social Services Workforce Data
Our workforce data, information and intelligence publications are all available from this section of the web-site.
The aim of the Workforce Skills Reports (WSRs) is to bring together data on the sector's workforce, uptake of relevant qualifications, and data on service users along with broader information on drivers of change (e.g. developments in policy) in order to identify key workforce development challenges for the sector.
The SSSC has revised and republished the 2012 Scottish Social Services workforce data report. This follows the identification of an error in the original version of the 2012 report published in September 2013. The error resulted in the social service workforce headcount being underestimated by approximately 1,200 i.e. 0.6% of the sector's workforce.
The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) today published Scottish Social Services Sector: Report on 2013 Workforce Data.
This spreadsheet presents 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.
