Dear Shrewsbury Colleges Group,

I would like to find out how many non-disclosure agreements have been signed with employees who have left the college group in the last five years.

I would also like to find out how many other legal agreements have been signed with employees who have left the college group in the last five years.

For both of these, I would like to find out how much money the college group has paid out as a result of these agreements.

I would also like to know how many non-disclosure agreements were signed by academic teaching staff and support staff over the 5 year period.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Jordan

Dear Shrewsbury Colleges Group,

For clarification the college may interpret a non-disclosure agree as a settlement agreement

Yours faithfully,
