Training records are maintained locally, by line managers, and nationally by training co-ordinators. Whilst these records detail the numbers and names of those trained they are separate to records that detail staff movements and who is in post. Therefore it is not possible to report on the numbers of caseworkers in post who undertook this training without a detailed manual check of multiple records.
