Agency spend 2021/22

The request was successful.

Dear Sparsholt College,

Can you provide a breakdown of money spent on Lecturers/Assessors/Learning Support via recruitment agencies for the 21/22 Academic year. Split by temporary and permanent.

Can you also specify the money spent with each specific agency and in which department?

Yours faithfully,

Adam Clayton

Scott Hermiston,

Dear Mr Clayton
Sparsholt College Group's expenditure in 2021-22 with agencies for academic and learning support staff is as follows:

Academic staff: £103,511
Learning Support staff: £29,310
Charges for recruiting permanent staff: £20,000

The academic staff charges break down by area as follows:

Land Based Faculty: £4,411
Professions Faculty: £36,300
Sixth Form Faculty: £15,583
Central Support Teaching: £47,217

I cannot break these charges down any further without jeopardising the Data Protection Act's proviso that information supplied publicly should not enable the identification of data relating to individuals.
I decline to disclose the individual agencies that the monies were paid to as a matter of commercial confidence.

Kind regards
