    Justification for Microsoft courses

    Hi,

    I'm working towards obtaining my MCSA and have applied to go on the next course on the track. My head has asked me to justify how it will benefit the school. Has anyone any good ideas as to things I can put down?

    Thanks in advance,

    Increase your knowledge of microsoft infrastructures in order to make you a better, more efficient systems administrator whilst forfilling your Personal Development Plan (PDP)

    It will expand your skillset allowing you to deal with problems, plan for future updates or problems more efficiently, whilst also complying the the need for schools to provide CPD for staff. Oh, and it'll stop you jumping ship to go to an employer who will provide the training.

    In my case, the HT commented only last week that we haven't had one bill from the guy I use for external support since I went on my training last May. £1500 of Training has paid for itself already!

    I've called him a couple of times, but he hasn't had to come in and hasn't billed us for the short phone calls involved.

    Corollary is that it will give you the skill set to make you able to apply for another job ...

    I'm sure we've had threads before about employers wanting an agreement that you will pay back the cost of a training course if you leave within a certain time.

    Which really, is reasonable enough.

    Sadly my last employer forgot to specify that. Free training and a decent raise.

    Cheers for the help people. I used a few comments from here and a few I'd made up and they're letting me go on the course.
