Dear Ms Bednarova,

Freedom of Information Act Request - our reference 2019-233

Further to your email of 14 October 2019 asking for information from
Oxford Brookes University about mental health first aid training, I am
able to provide the following information in response to your request.

You asked:

I would like to receive information about the number of your full-time
employees who currently have certification in mental health first aid
training.

Answer:

28

I would like to also kindly ask for the total number of students
attending your university at the moment.

Answer:

We are withholding this as we believe section 22 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 applies here.  Section 22 refers to
information that is going to be published.  Our student numbers are
routinely published both in our own Financial Statements, which can be
found here: 
[1]https://www.brookes.ac.uk/about-brookes/...
and by HESA: [2]https://www.hesa.ac.uk/

For reference, last year's student numbers can be found on page 14 of
the 2017/18 Financial Statements.

If this information does not address your requirements under the Freedom
of Information Act or you wish to complain about any aspect of the
handling of this request, then you should contact the undersigned in the
first instance. Should you remain dissatisfied, then you may apply for an
internal review by contacting the Director of Marketing and Communications
at Oxford Brookes University, Headington Campus, Gipsy Lane, Oxford OX3
OBP (email: [3][email address] ).  Your request for internal
review should be submitted to us within 40 working days of receipt by you
of this response. 

During the independent review the handling of your information request
will be reassessed by staff who were not involved in providing you with
this response. If you remain dissatisfied with the handling of your
request or complaint, you have a right to appeal to the Information
Commissioner at The Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House,
Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF. Further contact information and
details of the role and powers of the Information Commissioner can be
found on the Commissioner's website: [4]http://www.ico.org.uk/ 

Please note that the Information Commissioner is unlikely to investigate
your case until the University’s internal review process has been
completed.

Yours sincerely

Vanna Leathart
