Departmental Training

Volume 502: debated on Monday 14 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how many overseas training courses were attended by his Department's civil servants in the latest period for which figures are available; how many civil servants attended each course; and what the total cost to the public purse was of each course. (305906)

It is not possible to provide information of all training courses attended by civil servants or the amount spent by the Department for International Development (DFID) on overseas training courses without incurring disproportionate costs. 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.
