The Scotland Office does not employ staff directly; all staff that join do so on an assignment, loan or secondment from other government bodies.

All staff have access to a wide range of professional development courses through their parent employers, through Civil Service Learning, and in the form of continuous on the job training. The Office does not have a record of time spent on training in each of the last three financial years.
