Dear Worcestershire County Council,

Please kindly supply a list of each course mandatory by law issued to your employees and volunteers working in libraries over the past 24 months.

Definition of 'mandatory': Must be completed if the staff or volunteer wishes to continue with you.

Scope of 'mandatory': This is only courses which the law tells you are mandatory.

Definition of 'employee': An individual hired by an employer to do a specific job in exchange for a wage/salary.

Definition of 'volunteer': A person who donates his/her time or efforts for a cause or organization without being paid. A person who works in a soup kitchen for free is an example of a volunteer. A council would have volunteers in various roles such as cleaning the streets, helping in museums, providing computer tuition or other activities in libraries (all without payment).

You recently kindly provided us with this list of courses from wider scopes so we would expect the results to contain some of these:
Corporate Induction
Equality & Diversity
Fraud awareness - Doing the right thing
Fire safety
Freedom of information awareness
Health & safety awareness
Introduction to Data Protection
Safeguarding Children
Safeguarding Adults

Some of the above information has been formulated as a result of clarification requests.

Yours faithfully,

Lee Jefferson
