Support staff (SWAC)

Statistics on support staff including workforce characteristics and staff roles from the School Workforce Annual Census (SWAC).

Due to changes to calculation of headcounts, figures for 2020 are not directly comparable to 2019 figures.

An improved methodology for accounting for duplicate records was introduced which may have led to some small revisions to the breakdown of some staff characteristics in the headcount data for 2019.

See our 'School Workforce Census Results' statistical release and accompanying ‘School Workforce Annual Census: Background Information’ for further detail.
