Professional Development

There are a number of conditions attached to the approval to support you in your chosen course of study, which you need to be aware of. You must:

  1. Inform the Corporate Training Team of any grant, bursary or other financial assistance you may apply for or receive from any other source; as this may affect the level of funding to which you will be entitled.
  2. Remain in the employment of the Council for a period of two years from the date on which your qualification is obtained:
    1. Should you leave the Council's service other than by reason of compulsory redundancy or ill-health within two years of this date, you will be required to repay 100% of the financial assistance paid by the Council during the first year and 50% during the second year.
  3. Notify your line manager and the Corporate Training Team at the earliest opportunity of any reasons for being unable to complete the course.
    1. Financial support may be withdrawn or you may be required to repay all or a proportion of the financial support if you fail to complete the course within a reasonable period, fail to show satisfactory progress or discontinue the course. The amount to be repaid will be determined by the Council, taking into account the individual circumstances.
  4. Update your line manager on a monthly basis of your progress on the course, including any difficulties you may be experiencing.
