Required Unconscious Bias online training for all staff which is accessed via Civil Service Learning forms part of the Civil Service Learning offer. Although we pay a yearly subscription cost for all Civil Service Learning, we are not able to provide a breakdown of spend for the required Unconscious Bias online training for all staff accessed via Civil Service Learning.
In addition to online training, in 2019-20 we held and paid for face to face Unconscious Bias workshops as part of Senior Civil Service and management training programmes.
Whilst our records show a spend of £12,234 for April 2019 to March 2020, learning on Unconscious Bias is built into other learning programmes, such as our line management training offer. This includes workshops on ‘Leading Inclusive Teams’ and ‘Building Effective Teams’. It is not possible to extract the amount spent on Unconscious Bias where this forms part of a broader training offer.
