Request to Academy to cover cost of training programme/course/activity

The Local Consultations Committee (composed of representatives of the Academy and the trade unions) consider it well worthwhile to spend part of the employee benefits budget on sustainable career development. Training, courses and coaching meant to support sustainable career development are therefore funded from this budget.

Staff employed by the Academy may use the form below to apply to the Career Centre KNAW for training/courses/activities funded from the employee benefits budget. The Academy Career Centre will then contact you about your enrolment, the relevant paperwork, and invoicing.

Because the Academy considers your sustainable career development crucial, it is important for you to talk to your supervisor about this (including during your annual performance review). We therefore ask you to discuss your career with your supervisor before you fill in this application form and to agree on which activity (training or coaching) would support your sustainable career development best.

Fields with an * are obligatory.
