                       DATE Group Panel
   Outcome of the Allocation of Funding for
    High Cost Training and Study Leave for
           former NPHS core staff
Author: Gay Reynolds, Corporate Support Manager
Date: 17 August 2010                    Version: 0a
Purpose and Summary of Document:
In order to support staff equitably across former NPHS Teams a limit of
£1,000 was applied in accordance with former NPHS published process,
approved by iSMT in May 2010. This action has been questioned by some
applicants who hoped to receive slightly more funding. However the
budget is insufficient to raise this level of support for all staff concerned.
This has led to a residual sum being left over after all applications received
for academic courses have been supported.


DATE Group proposes to use the sum to put on some leadership /
management skills training, which will be delivered at various Public
Health Wales locations across Wales and will be open for staff to apply for
limited places. To this end, DATE Group will start discussions with NLIAH
in September 2010.


A breakdown on how the budget for high cost training was allocated by
the DATE Group Panel is attached at appendix 1.
Public Health Wales                     Allocation of Funding for High Cost Study
                                                                            Leave



1        Introduction
The continuing development of Public Health Wales staff remains a priority
for the organisation but available funding for training and study leave is
limited. It is therefore essential that the benefit from expenditure on
training and study leave is maximised The process for the allocation of
available funding was set up to ensure that any approval of expenditure is
fair, equitable and supports the strategic aims and objectives of Public
Health Wales.

In previous years the centrally managed high cost training budget was set
at £30k. However due to the financial budgetary constraints the 2010 /11
training budget has been set at 25k. This required the DATE Group, when
revisiting the Process for the Allocation of Funding for High Cost Training
and Study Leave, to adopt a more flexible approach to allocation if the
level provision of high cost training was to be maintained. This included
the introduction of a cap of up to a maximum of £1,000 of the total fee for
the financial year that the application was submitted. The introduction of
this new tariff was considered to be essential as part way through
2009/10 the budget was completely spent. This led to a number of
applications being turned down due to the lack of resources. The updated
process was approved by iSMT in May 2010.


2        Allocation of High Cost Funding 2010 /11

The DATE Group Panel met on the 15th July to consider applications from
former NPHS staff (excluding Health Protection) for high cost training and
study leave. As the number of applications received exceeded the budget
allocation of £25k, and to avoid a repeat of last year, whereby the budget
was spend part way through the year, it was agreed to consider those
staff that were part way through a course first prior to any new
applications.


Following a discussion the panel also agreed that to be fair and equitable
the new tariff of up to a maximum of £1,000 organisational contribution
should be applied to all approved expenditure. This tariff was applied to
five applicants who where part way through a course and two new
applications. This action has been questioned by some applicants who
hoped to receive slightly more funding. Subsequently the DATE Group has
received a request for the gap between the £1,000 support agreed by the
recent DATE Group panel and the 75% that had been allocated in previous
years to be funding from Team budgets.


A detailed breakdown expenditure is attached as appendix 1.
