Equality Training: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested

Please confirm all Scottish Government spending on equality training in each of the last three full financial years. 

Please also confirm how many staff have attended equality training in each of the last three full financial years, and also how many working hours have been spent doing equality training. 


In terms of equality training, the Scottish Government has mandatory inclusive culture training which was introduced in June 2021. I have therefore included the information from the financial year 2021/2022 as the training was not being delivered prior to this year.

The total financial spend associated with the creation and delivery of the training is £34,680.

The training is delivered to all employees, comprising of a 75 minute training for employees without line management responsibility and 90 minute training for employees with line management responsibility and for senior civil servants.
