Departmental Training Courses

Volume 456: debated on Tuesday 6 February 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what training courses were offered to (a) Ministers and (b) civil servants in his Department in the last 12 months. (117952)

[holding answer 1 February 2007]: Individuals and their line managers identify learning and development needs, and the appropriate courses to attend, over the course of the year. Individuals can access a variety of courses to meet their requirements either through the Departments preferred supplier, PTSC, or other suppliers where PTSC do not offer the required training.

Details are not held centrally as learning and development is devolved across the Department.

Ministers make their own arrangements to identify and access learning and development for their own particular needs.
