Dear Reading Borough Council,

Please provide copies of any workforce related returns made to Skills for Care from 2015 - 2021.

FOIeng_GenMail,

If you have contacted us with an FOI or Subject Access Request, please
note:

We have been assessing the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on our ability
to continue to deliver our services in respect of  FOI requests and
Subject Access Requests, while at the same time protecting our colleagues.

We have been reviewing the developments and Government announcements on a
daily basis and have closely followed the advice issue by Public Health
England.

Our staff are working from home, flexibly, and we will endeavour to
continue to deal with your open enquiry however, there may be some
interruption to those making contact with us for the first time. This
means, during this time, we will log any new enquires received however we
may not be able to deal with it fully until the current crisis is over. If
you have already registered an FOI or SAR, with us, we may continue to
work on it and but please be aware our ability to progress cases may be
limited. This is because the Council is a front line response service and
considerable effort is being made to keep essential services running by
redeploy staff from other areas. In that context, we have to make
difficult decisions and it might take a bit longer to respond to your
enquiry.

We appreciate your support and understanding at this challenging time as
we endeavour to maintain essential services while protecting our staff and
customers.  We will update our website regularly to keep you informed.

Dear Matt

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST

 

Thank you for your recent request received in this office on 31 January
2021.

 

You have requested the following information under the provisions of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000:

 

Please provide copies of any workforce related returns made to Skills for
Care from 2015 - 2021.

 

Due to the nature of information submitted, I do not believe any
personally identifiable information should be contained in such files -
but I am happy to receive these with any specific personally identifiable
information redacted.

 

Our response is as follows:-

 

Please find attached the available data for 2017-2020.

 

Unfortunately, due to past data processing procedures, we do not have the
data for 2015 and 2016 in a reportable format. During these years the data
was manually uploaded to the system on a team by team basis, resulting in
no central records being stored.

 

Also, the data for 2021 Skills for Care return is not currently available
as it has not yet been compiled. We expect this to be compiled and
available by September 2021, in accordance with the Skills for Care
mandatory return deadline to upload data.

 

You are free to use any information supplied to you for your own personal
purposes or for non-commercial research, private study or news reporting.
However, you do not have the right to re-use the information in a way
which infringes copyright, for example, by distributing, making copies of
or publishing the information, without the permission of the copyright
holder, which in most cases will be Reading Borough Council. If you wish
to obtain permission for such use, please contact Mr M Graham, Assistant
Director of Legal and Democratic Services, at Reading Borough Council.

 

Please note that your request may itself be the subject of a FOI request
and will be disclosed in that event.

 

If you are unhappy with this response to your request for information
under the Freedom of Information Act then you may ask for an internal
review. Please make a request in writing to Mr M Graham, Assistant
Director of Legal and Democratic Services, at Reading Borough Council.  If
you request such a review and are not content with its outcome, then you
have a right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
