If you are a staff member planning on submitting an application for educational leave for fall, 2024 or winter, 2025 the deadline is fast approaching. The staff educational leave program is an amazing benefit for employees who wish to further their education. Learning is significantly linked to happiness and career growth, so we are very fortunate to have an employer that supports and encourages us as we strive to reach our goals and ambitions. Article 24.3(b) of the collective agreement outlines the staff educational leave criteria, and the HR website has all the information you will need to get you started, including the application form. Please read through these resources carefully before submitting your application, and feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
