Should I discuss my application with my manager?
Yes you must do this. There are several reasons for doing so.
- Your application must have the support of your line manager - they need to complete Section B of the application form. If these details are not all completed/they do not support it, then your application cannot be considered.
- It is anticipated that the courses of study will be identified through the Personal Development Planning process.
- You may need support with Study leave.
- The questions require you to outline the links between the learning and its application in practice and also its evaluation. As such you need to discuss these aspects with your manager in advance of making your application.
