Skills for Care launches the State of the Adult Social Care Workforce report

 

Skills for Care has launched the second State of the Adult Social Care Workforce report packed with the latest data helping 17,300 organisations make sense of a complex sector providing social care for adults and older people in England. The report found that the size of the adult social care sector continues to increase as the estimated number of paid jobs across the sector rose to 1.71 million carried out by 1.6 million paid staff. The new report based on improved data from Skills for Care's National Minimum Data Set for Social Care (NMDS-SC) and national statistics from the Office of National Statistics covers key areas including a gender profile confirming that about 80% of all jobs in adult social care are done by women as well as the age of workers in the sector and pay levels. Skills for Care's NMDS-SC reveals that 64% of all senior care workers hold care-related qualifications up to NVQ Level 2 or above, at least 39% are qualified up to Level 3 or above and 62% of Registered Managers are qualified to level 4 or above. The report also supplies invaluable data for employers about vacancy and turnover rates as well as well as looking at skills shortages and gaps across the sector. The report's authors have looked at four hypothetical models examining the potential size of the workforce in 2025 which are designed to add to the debate about how the sector will recruit and retain the future workforce as the demographic profile of the population undergoes dramatic changes. "The adult social care sector was once famously described as a 'data desert' so Skills for Care believes this new report will provide an oasis of information making sure we have reliable data to create a trained and qualified workforce capable of meeting the huge challenges ahead," says Skills for Care Chair Professor David Croisdale-Appleby. "We can see there has been a significant increase in the number of service providers and employees and given this trend is going to continue we now have a report that will help us make long term workforce planning decisions based on robust data rather than anecdotal evidence."
