If you contact the Training Programme directly you will be advised to complete the survey, and your absence will documented as unauthorised if it is not.

  • The absence must be reported on or before the day of the session if it is not then it will be marked as an unautorised absence.

  • If you are on a long term absence (In excess of four weeks) for reasons such as sick leave, MAT leave or a period OOP, the Training Programme will have been made aware by the LET and appreciate we will need to record this manually ourselves in some cases.
  • For those of you that are LTFT, and will not attend every session, please declare the sessions you will not be attending as an absence, under the reason 'Other'.
  • A monthly absence return will be sent to the LET (your employer)¬†based on the data submitted by yourselves so please ensure that would you submit is accurate.
