Dear Sir or Madam

Thank you for your response (below), unfortunately you have failed to include if any members of staff/employees have attended 'Common Purpose' courses or training?

Freedom of Information Act: Request for Information

I am writing in respect of your recent enquiry for information held by Shepway District Council under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. I can confirm that the Council has not used `Common Purpose' to provide training for Councillors. '

Yours sincerely,

Dear Sir

Further to your response I can confirm that in 2005 and 2006, 2
members of staff attended training sessions conducted by Common
Purpose at a cost of £3,525.00 and $2,820.00 respectively.

Dear Claire Thomas,

Please compile with parts (2) & (4) of the orginal request.(below)

2. Name all employees who have attended a Common Purpose course?

4. Please provide copies of invoices/receipts.

And confirm whether or not $2,820.00 was a mistake and was supposed to have been in £ instead ?

Yours sincerely,

R Soles

Dear Sir

Firstly I can confirm that $2, 800.00 was indeed an error and it should
have read '£2, 800.00'

Secondly, I have attached copies of the invoices. This training was
attended by the then Performance Monitoring Officer and the Environmental
Health Manager, neither of whom are still in the employ of the Council.
Their posts are not of sufficient seniority to warrant disclosure of their
names; which would also have implications under the Data Protection Act.

Regards

Claire Thomas
