    Training Contracts

    Hi All

    I am new to the forums and having posted this question over at ict technician.com, i also wish for your feedback on the issue.

    I signed a contract in Jan 04, for £6k worth of MS training, and if i left within 1 year of completed training would payback full amount, 2nd year 2/3 amount, and 3 year 1/3 of amount.

    It was subject to me completing an MCSA, which i completed in March 06.

    The problem is now, i would like to leave for a better paid job - but i don't want to be landed with a huge debt.

    The school i work at is private independent school with investors in people award.

    My next step is to email investors in people to see if they can help with the situation.

    Thanks

    Kevin

    Quite normal I'm afraid. Alot of companines do this and its quite fair if you think about it. Investing in people involves investing in the company too.

    On the other hand if the new company want you bad enough they will cough up the money you need t pay back, but i doubt you'll get another educational establishement pay it.

    If you signed a contract I think your going to have to pay the penalty if you leave earlier. I would say this is reasonable enough given the fact they have invested 6k in your training.
    Put yourself in their shoes that if they paid for everyone to have training and they left soon after! It would mean your sucessor would never get a chance like that more than likely. Once bitten etc etc

    I know what your all saying - the school has been great with me, but i just don't feel like i'm going anywhere - the network is so small there is no need for another technician, and there is no chance of a promotion to anything above me. Just getting a little frustrated at the minute.

    I know i should be happy with the situation but i'm wanting a challenge!

    Money is spent here so slowly aswell being a private company. I suppose i should just complete my microsoft exams i have remaining to MCSE (i have had training for this also) and work out the rest of my 'sentence'.

    I have applied for another job but i see it as unlikely that anyone would cough up £4k for me.
