A breakdown of staff training costs in each financial year since the creation of Social Security Scotland.
Under Section 25 of FOISA we do not have to give you information which is already reasonably accessible to you. The information requested is published in our Annual Report each year:
The information requested sits within the table labelled “Other administration costs” within the Financial Statements section of each report.
For the current financial year 2022-23, we have spent £0.2 million on training from 1 April 2022 to 31 August 2022. Please note the figures from 1 April 2022 to 31 August 2022 are unaudited and are therefore subject to change, and the total figure for the financial year 2022-23 will change as more information becomes available.
Social Security Scotland is committed to publishing responses to requests. The Scottish Government also publishes responses to requests. You can view the responses at http://www.gov.scot/foi-responses.
