I suppose that I have been pretty spoilt.
I have only had two jobs in my 20 years of working.
The navy and a university.
Both have been excellent at training.
I actually spent about 30% of my military career in a classroom.
The navy has a return of service obligation (ROSO) for all overseas courses or long or attractive courses... ie university degrees. The general rule is : length of course Plus one year as the return obligation.
More recently at the uni, we get 4 hours study per week and can get a futher 8 hours (a week) off twice a year for exam study. There is no ROSO at the university.
The uni has an excellent staff training course list and we are of course encouraged to take part in this free(to the person and their department at least) in-house training.
External training is normally budget limited, but is ultimately granted if it is deemed a mandatory requirement to complete your normal daily tasks.
