Prepared internally, no external costs.
I would like numbers or statistics on females learning trades at Highlands college, or any data relevant to the subject that you have.
I am not sure what sort of information is available? For example, do Social Security / Customer and Local Services keep records of career type or the statistics department analyse this sort of thing, ie the percentage of the industry that is female?
There are currently eight females registered in construction related trade courses at Highlands College.
Customer and Local Services do not hold this information in recorded form. To answer the request, the data would need to be extracted from various sources and manipulated, aside from taking more than the prescribed 12.5 hours, the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 does not require a Scheduled Public Authority to manipulate data in order to provide a response. Article 16 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has therefore been applied.
Article 16 A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive
(1) A scheduled public authority that has been requested to supply information may refuse to supply the information if it estimates that the cost of doing so would exceed an amount determined in the manner prescribed by Regulations.
Regulation 2 (1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 allows an authority to refuse a request for information where the estimated cost of dealing with the request would exceed the specified amount of the cost limit of £500. This is the estimated cost of one person spending 12.5 working hours in determining whether the department holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the information.
