No data is yet available from the SFC for colleges in 2017-18, nor do the SFC hold data by staff type.
West College Scotland was formed of 3 colleges; James Watt, Reid Kerr and Clydebank in 2013. 2014-15 is the first year for which the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) hold data on staffing at West College Scotland. The SFC report that the number of full-time equivalent lecturers in the year 2014-15 was 390 FTE; 404.9 FTE in the year 2015-16 and 400.2 FTE in 2016-17.
