For example, this could include (amongst other guises) “EDI officers” or “diversity and inclusion project managers” but would not include general HR managers.
- Either a) the pay band of each of these roles, or b) the combined total salaries for these roles. Whichever measure is more in accordance with your data preferences.

3. Information about the number of staff days which may have been dedicated to attending equality training programmes specifically, both internally and externally, is not held centrally by the Trust. Whilst all new staff are required to undertake Equality and Diversity training at Induction and follow up training every three years, we do not maintain a cumulative total of the time this involves.
Under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act the Trust is not required to create ‘new’ information for the purpose of answering a FOI request. According to guidance issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office, where the provision of information will require complex analysis and a high level of skill and judgement to produce, this would amount to creating information not already held. An initial assessment of the work involved in providing information in the format requested, concluded that it meets the criteria of information ‘not held’ under this guidance.
