Unconscious Bias training is undertaken by members of the Ministry of Defence (MOD) via an e-learning package on the Civil Service Learning Platform. The learning is free at the point of use, so there is no associated per-person cost for this training to be carried out. The MOD contributes to the funding of Civil Service HR, including Civil Service Learning annually, therefore it is not possible to disaggregate the cost of Unconscious Bias training from the wider budget.
