Metadata

General description

The data covers different aspects of the school workforce in Wales, using the data collected from the School Workforce Annual Census (SWAC).

Data collection and calculation

School's data are derived from the School Workforce Annual Census (SWAC) returns in November each year. In 2019, there were 4 schools out of 1,502 (99.7% return rate) that did not submit a SWAC school return. For these schools the total number of staff was estimated using a scaling factor derived by comparing staff headcount numbers returned in SWAC and the Pupil Level Annual School Census (PLASC) by schools with similar characteristics within the same local authority. The estimated figures for the missing schools have been recorded as ‘unknown’ for breakdowns by specific characteristics (e.g. sex, age).

Data reference periods

Users, uses and context

As SWAC is an individual level collection there may be instances where a workforce member is recorded against multiple roles within the same school or in multiple schools. For local authority staff headcount, as part of the linking and aggregation process, those teachers with more than one role (e.g. working part-time in two schools) have their information combined into one record for each local authority they appear in, recorded against the highest grade for that individual.
For Wales level headcount, the same rationale is applied where teachers with more than one role (e.g. working part-time in two schools) but in different local authorities have their information combined into one record, recorded against the highest grade for the individual.
For this reason, where information is published by local authority the sum of local authorities may not equal to the Wales figure published.

Due to changes to calculation of headcounts for 2020, figures for 2019 are not directly comparable to future years figures. See our 'School Workforce Census Results' statistical release and accompanying ‘School Workforce Annual Census: Background Information’ for further detail.

Rounding applied

* = numbers greater than zero but less than five. Support Staff numbers have been rounded to the nearest 5.

Revisions information

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.

Statistical quality

The information collected for 2020, 2021 and 2022 have not undergone a formal final validation period. However, various stages of automated validation and sense-checking are built into the process to ensure a high quality of data to inform policy making. A final validation period is being considered to be introduced for future collections for schools and LAs to review the information they return, and re-submit their data where errors are identified prior to publication.
