Written answers (Question to Education)

The attached table shows the data available in my Department for the percentage of Academic and Non-Academic staff employed in each of the seven universities and 14 institutes of technology at 31st March 2013 as reported by the institutions to the Higher Education Authority. The institutions are not required to provide a further breakdown of the data by grade or function. There is no generic contract for a working week for staff in the Higher Education Institutions. A variety of arrangements are in place across the sector. Details of contract hours for administrators in individual HEIs are not available in my Department.
