Is there any official leave allocated for personal development / ELC courses ?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Ive got a package of courses booked with a professional training company in London that is going to get me CCNA, CCNA Security, CCNA VOIP and CCNP trained. With the learning credits its not going to cost me all that much money but it requires 23 days out of work to attend the courses. The hierachy will not help with time out of the office despite these courses being directly beneficial to my current post. 23 days is an awful lot of time to have to lose out of my annual leave entitlement ! I just wondered if anyone out there knew of any official leave grant that I could claim to lessen the burden on my priv ?
     
  2. Not up to date on the current regs, but certainly things like OU summer school never came off leave. Get onto your local Army Education Centre and talk to the IERO-he will know for certain.
