Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 13 November 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how many (a) full-time equivalent lecturers, (b) other academic, (c) administrative and (d) other staff have been employed by each West College Scotland campus in each year since 2011.

Answered by: Richard Lochhead 27 November 2018

West College Scotland was formed of 3 colleges; James Watt, Reid Kerr and Clydebank in 2013. 2014-15 is the first year for which the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) hold data on staffing at West College Scotland. The SFC report that the number of full-time equivalent lecturers in the year 2014-15 was 390 FTE; 404.9 FTE in the year 2015-16 and 400.2 FTE in 2016-17.

No data is yet available from the SFC for colleges in 2017-18, nor do the SFC hold data by staff type.

Separate data provided by West College Scotland provides data of other academic, administrative and ancillary staff
