If employees want to attend external training, for example at a college or university, we are able to fund or partly fund where this will be beneficial to the service, clients and staff member. The Staff member attending an external course is required to submit a case for the needs and benefits this training will give to them and their service. It is also expected that they will share their new learning with their team members.
Requests to attend training should be supported by your workplace supervisor or manager and be made via an External Training Application Form. This form should be completed and signed by both you and your manager.
Please forward your request to the Training Department at Head Office either by email firstname.lastname@example.org or fax 0161 228 0560. Applications to attend external training events should be made at least four weeks before the start of the course or the closing date for application/booking. Although nominations may, in some cases, be accepted after this time- allocation will be subject to availability.
Once we have received the application form, we will then send you a financial agreement form which you need to complete and return to us.
On receipt of the financial agreement, the Learning & Development team will process your application including creating a purchase order and booking with the provider. No provisional bookings must be made until all paperwork is received and authorised.
