Educational Assistance

Brewarrina Shire Council ("Council") recognises that appropriate continual learning can be valuable for the development and welfare of its employees.  Appropriate education can contribute to the quality and competence of employees and in turn increase further the productivity and success of Council.

The objective of this Policy is to outline the assistance Council may provide to employees who wish to undertake relevant continuing education with the Council's approval. This Policy covers both the financial assistance and assistance with working arrangements, which may be provided by Council, to assist employees balance the demands of work and further studies.

Nothing in this Policy affects the application of Council scholarship programs or policies, training and development provisions of the Local Government (State) Award 2010.
