S5W-16182: Liz Smith (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 25 April 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how many colleges and universities offer (a) courses and (b) qualifications in e-commerce.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 10 May 2018

The Scottish Government and its agencies and partners are fully committed to ensuring that e-commerce is incorporated into their wider digital support across all sectors.

Due to the cross-disciplinary nature of e-commerce, many courses at colleges and universities will contribute to the skills pool supporting e-commerce. However, the Scottish Government does not hold information on each individual course which has e-commerce embedded within it.
