Departmental Training

Volume 497: debated on Monday 12 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development 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. (289603)

It is not possible, without incurring disproportionate costs, to provide details on how external training courses were attended by staff in the Department for International Development (DFID) and what the cost was of each course.

Sub-departments and overseas offices within DFID are responsible for arranging and financing staff training. Information on the amount spent on training courses is not held centrally.
