We hold records on training provided centrally. In the 12 months to the end of November 2009, one employee attended a training course where an element of it was delivered overseas. This was a leadership development programme at the National School of Government which consisted of six modules of which five were delivered locally in the UK. The total cost was £14,500, with the overseas element of the programme amounting to £4,350.
A number of training courses are agreed locally and a detailed check of those records to see if any involved an element of overseas travel would incur disproportionate cost.
