Stephanie Roy, Poole Borough Council

Dear Alex,

I am doing my best to get this information for you, but have a few
questions:

 

1.    When you say ‘training budget’ do you mean the money we have
budgeted for each of the financial years listed to spend on commissioned
training? We also have a number of other workforce development budgets
i.e. to fund post-qualifying courses and social work degree
qualifications. A definition of ‘training budget’ would be helpful.

2.    Could you be clearer about what you mean by administration costs? I
am not able to give you information about how much each course costs to
administrate because I don’t have this data to hand. Are you referring to
our staff administrator salary costs?

3.    For b) are you asking for details about courses we commissioned, or
numbers of courses commissioned?

4.    For c) are you asking about e-learning courses which CYPSC
commissioned or that the Borough commissioned and our staff have utilised?

 

I am more than happy to help but am only able to provide you with budget
information as it is currently broken down on our budget sheets.

 

Regards

Steph
