An annual report which presents data by institution and pay expenditure categories for August 2017 to July 2018.

Statistics in the years 2009/10 to 2017/18 have been collected from the institutions by us via the Finance Record. Previous reports were sourced from the Staff Individualised Record.

Key points

  • During 2017/18, staff numbers, directly employed by Further Education Institutions in Wales, amounted to 8,520 full time equivalents (FTEs).
  • The overall number of direct staff FTEs rose by 6% between 2016/17 and 2017/18. This increase was, at least in part, due to a college acquiring two work-based learning providers during the year.
  • Year on year changes in staff FTE numbers varied across FE institutions, with all but five institutions experiencing an overall increase in staff FTE numbers relative to 2016/17.
