Departmental Training

Volume 497: debated on Monday 12 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many external training courses were attended by staff of his Department in the last 12 months; and what the cost was of each course. (289690)

The Department does not collect this information centrally in the form requested. Information on the number of external training courses attended by employees in the last 12 months and the cost of each course is held locally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

The criteria for funding any external training courses will be driven by Professional Skills for Government.
