FOI, Stirling Council

Dear Mr Keast,

 

I refer to your request for information, logged by us as FOI/10795 and can
provide the following information in response to your request.

 

In your request you asked for:  “both the number and percentage of housing
staff who hold a housing related qualification for each of the last 5
years up to March 31 2017.

 

I should first advise that prior to 2016/17 all housing staff were located
in one service, and since that time housing staff have been split across
two different services who perform different roles relating to tenants and
properties.  The information in response to your request has therefore
come from two different services.  Both the total number of staff and the
percentage of those with a housing related qualification for these years
will be impacted.

 

Please note for the purposes of this request we have deemed the following
qualifications as being housing related.

·         Post- Graduate Diploma in Housing Studies

·         Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) Level 4 Certificate/Diploma
in Housing

·         Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) Professional Diploma in
Housing
