An SFC spokesperson said: “The college sector has demonstrated its strengths in adapting to the needs of the economy, providing increasing opportunities for those already in work to upskill or reskill and once again exceeding the Scottish government’s target of 116,269 full-time equivalents. There are, however, challenges to be addressed in improving attainment rates across the sector.
