Supporting Documents

Your application must be accompanied by a copy of your admission letter from the University/College where you intend to study. Additionally, if you are applying for a Three (3) months Research leave, you should attach the following documents:

  1. Initial admission letter.
  2. Coursework completion letter.
  3. Transcripts for units completed.

Ensure you have these documents ready when submitting your application.

Approval Before Departure

It is essential to note that you should not leave your duty station before receiving written approval from the Commission regarding your study leave. Leaving without approval can result in disciplinary action.

Return on Time

When your study leave ends, you are expected to report for duty on or before the specified date. Punctuality is crucial to maintain a smooth transition from your studies back to your teaching role.

Extension or Changes

If you need to extend your study leave or make changes to your course or institution, you must submit your request at least thirty (30) days in advance. Properly communicate these changes to avoid complications.

The Role of Your Headteacher and County Director

Your headteacher plays a crucial role in your study leave application. They will confirm the number of teachers from your school currently on study leave and either recommend or not recommend your application. If not recommended, valid reasons must be provided.
