Departmental Training

Volume 497: debated on Monday 12 October 2009

To ask the Leader of the House how many external training courses were attended by staff of her Office in the last 12 months; and what the cost was of each course. (289608)

Training courses are just one aspect of the development opportunities open to civil servants in the Office of the Leader of the House of Commons, and every member of staff discusses their personal development as part of their appraisal process.

Information on courses attended is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost. However, during the past 12 months members of staff participated in training provided by external training organisations and internal training courses which are provided by the Cabinet Office free of charge.
