[Collapse]StaffDue to missing data for a small number of LAs in respect of qualifications, the total of full and part time staff at the Wales level sometimes exceeds the total of those with required and recommended qualifications and other staff. A similar issue affects the Welsh language speaking subsets of these data. [Filtered]

General description

This table summarises information on the directly employed staff of social services departments in Wales. Local authorities also provide services using the independent sector, whose staff are not included in these figures.

Data collection and calculation

The data were supplied to the Data Collection team within the Welsh Government by the 22 local authorities in Wales on the Staffing data collection form. The form applies an extensive series of validation checks to ensure that the information provided is accurate and consistent.

Since 31 March 2008, Cardiff has been unable to provide the breakdown of staff with required or recommended occupational qualifications or Welsh speaking staff.

Whole-time equivalent staff numbers are based on contractual hours, rather than those actually worked on the census day. Whole-time equivalents should be calculated on the basis of 39 (contractual) hours per week for care assistants, manual and domestic staff, and 37 hours for other staff. For part-time staff their whole-time equivalent is calculated by dividing contractual hours by 39 or 37 as appropriate.
