The college sector is an important part of the enterprise and skills landscape in Scotland, contributing to the Scottish Government’s aspirations for economic growth. Each year the Auditor General carries out an audit of the college sector to provide assurance that colleges are responding effectively to the financial challenges they face and striving to improve outcomes for students and, in turn, the economy and society more widely.
The report will provide an update on the financial position of Scotland’s colleges, and on trends in student participation (including student attainment and retention) and outcomes that we reported in Scotland’s colleges 2019. These two areas have been of significant public interest.
Scotland’s colleges 2020 is due to be published in June 2020.
