This inquiry into the qualification levels of the residential child care workforce was commissioned from the Scottish Institute for Residential Child Care (SIRCC) by the Scottish Executive, in line with SIRCC’s objective of providing essential information for the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC). A previous audit was undertaken in 20011, published by SIRCC in April 2002, at which time the SSSC’s Qualifications Framework was not known. In March 2003, the baseline qualification for residential child care was announced by the SSSC, and this current report is based on the published qualifications framework.
