Date lodged: 7 October 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what percentage of college students have been (a) female, (b) male, (c) in employment and (d) not in employment at the time of registration in each year since 2013-14.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 4 November 2016

* ‘Category of student’ captures college students’ primary status at time of application. Those recorded as ‘Permanent or Temporary Employment’ will be in employment. ‘Other categories’ of student may include some applicants in some form of employment, but this is not captured alongside their primary status (e.g. school based students).
