Social Care Workforce Development Partnership (SCWDP) workforce data collection 2013
In 2013 the Care Council commissioned the Local Government Data Unit to support local authorities in the collection, collation and analysis of the Social Care Workforce Development Partnership workforce data collection for that year. The data was gathered by local authority Workforce Development Partnerships, looking exclusively at commissioned services within their areas. For the first time each area used the same form to collect the data on the workforce gender, age, qualification levels and language as well as other information.
We are pleased to be able to share here the report that details the findings of the project, alongside an analysis of the data.
The Wales wide data gathering and analysis will also be undertaken in 2014, and details on the findings are expected to be available in May 2015.
