The Home Department does not hold centrally details of expenditure on recruitment agency fees so this information could only be obtained at disproportionate cost. Expenditure on outplacement agency fees for displaced or
redundant staff for the financial years prior to 2014/15 was not held centrally and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost. The fully audited figures for 2014/15 will be available in July 2015.

The total staff training costs for the financial years 2010/11 to 2013/14 are set out below:

2010-11 - £13,598,237
2011-12 - £14,860,807
2012-13 - £16,986,868
2013-14 - £24,715,417

The full-year audited figures for total staff training expenditure for 2014-15 will be available in July 2015.
