Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 13 March 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how much public funding is awarded to Edinburgh College, and whether it expects to provide it with such support in 2018-19.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 24 March 2017

For AY 16-17 Edinburgh College was awarded the following funding:

£40,162,091 Grant in Aid for teaching;

£10,495,590 for student support;

£665,747 for European Social Funds; and

£5.3 for Business Transformation Plan (£2.9M of this is a cash advance to be repaid in future years).

Allocations from the Scottish Funding Council for future academic years will be dependent on the outcome of future spending reviews and the Business Transformation Plan support funding will finish in AY 17-18.
