Educational Assistance Policy

Version 1.1 Updated 6 Dec 2017
Policy Manage

Who can use this policy?

This policy can be used by all employers.


Encouraging employees to undertake further education holds many benefits for businesses. Higher levels of education contribute to the aptitude, skill and welfare of your employees. Your business can profit from the benefits of the continued education of your workforce.

This policy deals with both the financial assistance and assistance with working arrangements you will provide to relevant employees to assist them in balancing the demands of work and their further studies.

Before providing any amount of paid study leave to an employee under the policy, you should check any applicable contract of employment, awards, enterprise agreements, or any other relevant laws to ensure that the quantum of leave offered in your policy is consistent and not less beneficial to the employee.
