Responsibility for decision making

Each College and Service will have different arrangements in place regarding managers who can make decisions on training requests. It is expected that staff will, in the first instance, submit request for training to their PDR reviewer, although it is recognised that decisions may be made by a more senior manager. Meetings should be conducted by a manager who has delegated authority to make a decision on the employee’s request.

In cases where the College/Service is unable to accede to a request in full, managers should seek advice from Staff Learning and Development before responding to a request.

Managers in Professional Services should contact Clive Betts (Tel: 01392-725348)
