Funding approval for external training

The Directorate Office processes all external training requests for the DSE. If you want to go on a course or training and there is a cost incurred you will need to follow the process to obtain funding approval.  

Before you request funding please ensure you have followed local procedures to obtain the relevant management approval. 

Approvals for training requests lower than £400.00 (per individual) will be processed within 2- 3 working days. 

Training requests over £400.00 will go through a separate approval process and will take 3 – 10 working days.  

The Directorate Office produces quarterly reports for the leadership team to track spend. This reporting helps to identify training needs and requirements by role / section / Division / Directorate.
