Our Strategic Plan

Our Strategic Plan details our work for the next three years. The plan explains our outcomes, the work we will do to meet these outcomes and how we will show the difference we will make. It shows how our work contributes to the Scottish Government’s National Outcomes.

The Strategic Plan 2017-2020 sets out our strategic outcomes that we will work towards in 2017-2020.

The results of our work over the next three years will help us achieve the following strategic outcomes.

  1. The right people are on the Register.
  2. Our standards lead to a safe and skilled social service workforce.
  3. Our resources support the professional development of the social service workforce.
  4. Our stakeholders value our work.

During the lifetime of this Strategic Plan we will see many changes with significant policy developments starting to take shape. These developments will affect the social service workforce, their roles and the skills they require. With our partners, we are ready to face the changing times ahead and this plan sets out our role.

Our central aim is improvement. Over the next three years of this strategic plan we want to see life for people using social services across Scotland improve. The part we play in that is to make sure we have the right people with the right skills in place.
