The Department encourages all staff to complete Unconscious Bias training through Civil Service Learning.

We are only able to draw data from 1st April 2018, and 84% of Unconscious Bias training since that date was delivered online and therefore incurred no cost.

The estimated cost of the face-to-face training over the same period is shown in the table below.
