Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 20 April 2017

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-08437 by Shirley-Anne Somerville on 20 April 2017, for what reason it did not provide the information that was requested regarding whether it considers that the reduction in student activity at Edinburgh College has arisen because of poor planning and whether it will now provide this.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 4 May 2017

The Scottish Government continue to provide support to the Executive Team and Board of Management at Edinburgh College who have alongside the Scottish Funding Council, developed a Business Transformation Plan tackling a wide range of strategic and operational issues, including a review of the College's curriculum and course frameworks.

The Scottish Government detailed previously that a key strand of the Business Transformation Plan is the recruitment and retention processes.
