Dear Warwickshire College Group,
Please can you provide me with the details of the following:
(i) Total spend on agency staffing for the financial year April 2017 to March 2018.
(ii) Please specify what spend relates to teaching e.g. Lecturers, Assessors, Tutors, Support workers, as opposed to ‘other’ including admin/ catering/security etc.
(iii) If possible, I would like to request the spend is broken down by agency/ employment business.
Please find below the information you requested.
Total spend on agency staffing for the financial year April 2017 to March
* £743,302.18 - total spend on Teaching
* £57,374.89 - total spend on Other
WCG does not hold the information in the format you have requested, i.e.
broken down by lecturers, assessors, tutors, support workers, etc.
WCG is unable to provide information broken down by agency and is applying
the absolute exemption at section 41(1) of the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 (information provided in confidence). The disclosure of the
information into the public domain, as broken down by agency/employment
business, combined with the associated spend per agency/employment
business would constitute a breach of confidence actionable by that or
WCG is also applying the qualified exemption at section 43 of the Freedom
of Information Act 2000 (commercial interests). This exemption permits
public authorities to protect its own commercial interests and those of
third parties with whom it engages. With regard to the application of the
public interest test, WCG believes that the factors
that weigh in favour in withholding this information include:
1) disclosure would make it less likely that companies or individuals
would provide WCG with commercially sensitive information in the future
and consequently undermine the ability of WCG to fulfil its role; and
2) disclosure would be likely to prejudice the commercial interests of WCG
by affecting adversely its bargaining position during contractual
negotiations which would result in the less effective use of public money.
This response constitutes WCG's full response to your request for
