Donald MacLean,

Good morning Paulette.
Regarding your FOI request (below) I need some clarification before we can progress it.
As Perth College UHI was not directly involved in the recent series of College mergers across Scotland, the term 'since merger' does not apply.
Could I suggest that you reword your request with the specific dates or academic years you are interested in?
Once you supply me with dates, I can move the request on.
Many thanks,

Donald Maclean
