Dysg points to statistics about Higher Education in Wales.
Readers of this blog might be interested to note that:-
"In 2005/06 there were 17,705 staff at Welsh publicly funded HEIs, 525 more than in 2004/05.
Cardiff University employed most staff (5,685), more than double the next largest - the University of Glamorgan (2,065), University of Wales Aberystwyth (2,015), University of Wales Bangor (1,830) and University of Wales Swansea (1,640).
Less than a half - 8,150 staff - were recorded as academic professionals."
Interesting, for every academic post there is at least one non academic.
I wonder would it be worth making such a comparison for FE, secondary or primary education.
