Hey there

 

Thank you for reading this.

 

I have been in my actual job for exactly 2 years now. I have received a training in October 2013 and another one a week ago.

Now I have found another job - better pay, more free time, satisfaction of doing something that I enjoy ect, so obviously I am going to move on.

I am writing this in the eventuality that, they would expect me to pay something back, regarding my training, when I will hand in my resignation in the next couple of days.

 

In my actual job's contract there is a clause regarding training:

 

"The Company will provide comprehensive on the job training as required. In addition, the Company may, at its absolute discretion, wish to provide support by means of sponsorship for employees who wish to undertake job related training. All training agreements will be in writing and will be liable to repayment should you leave voluntarily within two years. Please see your Line Manager for more information."

 

First, I am a bit confused:???: about the "2 years" does it relate to the years of work from start or years after each training?

Second, I haven't signed anything at training, first one being a one day training, second one 4 hours.

 

Would they have any leg to stand on?

 

I appreciate all your answers and many thanks

I would think the 2 years would be from the date of training.

 

 

I can't see that 'on job training' cost them anything unless they brought in an instructor, if it was done by another member of staff, I can't see where any reimbursement would be required.

Hi Conniff,

 

First training was done by a person that doesn't work for our Company. Second training was done by an insider(a Company's employee).

The trainer at first training said that if someone wanted to do that training with his own money, would've cost about £200.

 

Many thanks for prompt reply.

sponsorship for job related training usually means just that; paying your fees for an external qualification. Like an NVQ or a diploma or something, Doesn;t sound like it applies to me.


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Hi Emmzzi,

 

Thank you for input.

Not sure about the meaning of your words, English isn't my first language.

Are you saying that being an in-house job related only, I wouldn't have to pay anything?

It's not much money, only I can't afford to pay anything, particularly atm, so I would not be happy with this kind of "surprises".

I am saying "sponsorship" usually means your employer eg paying college fees.

 

So personally I don't think it includes in house training. I think it very unlikely you will get a surprise!

If you did not sign a training contract, you have nothing to worry about.
