Employee Study and Training Leave
The University of Leicester recognises the importance of study and training. It firmly believes that study and training enables members of staff to achieve their individual goals which, in turn, helps to maintain the University’s position as a leading UK academic institution.
All members of staff have the statutory right to request time off for study or training. The University's non-contractual Policy and Procedure have been written in line with the Employee Study and Training Regulations 2010.
Line managers across the University already support staff to take paid time off to attend staff training and development activities such as courses, workshops and conferences. The Employee Study and Training Policy and associated Procedure do not supersede the existing mechanism for staff to request and take paid time off to attend any training courses co-ordinated by the Staff Development Partnership.
The Employee Study and Training Policy and associated Procedure are intended to provide members of staff with additional opportunity to request time off for study or training that is not provided by the Staff Development Partnership.
