TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT ALLOWANCE
All “A” and “B” (permanent) UFV employees have access to an Employee Training and Development Allowance, which is pro-rated if their contract is less than full-time.
The T & D Allowance is a supplement to the UFV in-service professional development plan. All activities currently approved by the Joint Professional Development Committee are also approved for reimbursement through the Training & Development Allowance.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are using Training & Development funds for professional development activities you must submit the appropriate In-Service Professional Development application.
Do not submit a separate application to use Training & Development funds for expenses related to an approved PD activity. If the expenses submitted for an In-Service PD activity exceed the funds approved and available, the additional expenses will be reimbursed automatically from an individual's Training & Development Allowance.
Employees may submit one claim (per fiscal) for the following eligible expenses:
- internet connection fees
- computer purchases (once every 3 years)
- approved research expenses eligible under UFV guidelines for non in-service professional development
PLEASE NOTE: All Training and Development Allowance claims must be received in Human Resources by February 28, in order to be reimbursed from the current fiscal year's funding. Any claims received after this date will not be eligible for reimbursement.
