This answer is a correction from the original answer.

The staffing resource assigned to Work Coach and Disability Employment Adviser activities is given below, measured as Full Time Equivalents (FTEs) based on activity-based management (ABM) activities and Staff in Post (SiP).

Disability Employment Adviser is one of several activities that are counted as Work Coach activities. As such, Disability Employment Advisers are shown as a subset of Work Coaches.

It is shown as at the end of each financial year since 2018-19, when Work Coach activity was first recorded as a discrete role within our data.

Notes to the tables

  1. Those carrying out Disability Employment Adviser activities may have this as their only activity, or may split their time between this and other Work Coach activities.
  2. FTE (ABM activities) is from Departmental Management Information which records how much of each persons’ role is spent doing certain types of work activity. This is then aggregated and rounded to the nearest whole number. The FTE (ABM activities) is therefore lower than the total Staff in Post.
  3. The main Glasgow conurbation falls within the Central Scotland Jobcentre District.
