S5O-00743: Lewis Macdonald (North East Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 1 March 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how many of the recently announced 371 new teacher training places will be at the University of Aberdeen.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 8 March 2017

We have issued guidance to the Scottish Funding Council on national student teacher intake numbers, and the Scottish Funding Council is now taking forward the process of agreeing student teacher intake numbers with individual universities.

Once this has been agreed, I am happy to update Mr Macdonald.
