Staff training away days for 2015

Reference No: 105/2015
Request Date: 22/09/2015


Over the past three years please can you tell me how many staff training “away days” and/or team-building days have been carried out for staff?

By “away days”/team-building days I mean days where staff have been taken on a training course to another location by an outside business/practitioner.

Can you break down that answer to tell me the purpose of each training day, where it was held and the total cost of each?
Could you also tell me the total cost of the away days/training days per year?

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under your Section 16 obligations, as to how I can refine my request to be included in the scope of the Act.

In any case, if you can identify ways that my request could be refined please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.


We have had a team away day for our Media Team this year using an external facilitator (Innovation central – cost £1300) and an external venue (Uttoxeter racecourse – cost £258).
