Annex B. Full Tme Equivalent
B 1. The full time equivalent ( FTE) measure accounts for differences in working hours within the Scottish Government, as part-time working or job-sharing is available to suit personal circumstances. The measure is given as a proportion of the number of hours worked in a week, compared to the working hours in a standard full-time working week. A full-time member of staff works 37 hours a week and is assigned a FTE value of 1. A staff member that works half the number of hours a week of a full-time member of staff (18.5 hours/week), would be assigned an FTE value of 0.5, and so forth.
