A training agreement is a written agreement between an employer and his employee that sets out the terms of any training that the company pays for them. It defines the cost of training, who provides the training and who is primarily responsible for remuneration. Do not accept a job offer without first discussing your training, development and the reasons for your departure with your QPRT or advisor. Whether you are studying or obtaining a university degree, you need you to be able to obtain a training contract from your university or private university school. Without the training contract, we unfortunately cannot help you, as Spanish law requires trainees to provide one. This is where a training reimbursement agreement comes in – it`s a way for companies to ensure they don`t lose financially when they pay for the development of their employees. Let`s take a look at an example of a training agreement in action. If a company were to spend £1,000 on a training course, but the employee resigned the day after the course ended, it would be fair and appropriate to ask the employee to repay the £1,000 as part of a training agreement. For example, if an employer sends someone on a course costing the employer £2,000 and the worker leaves his job as soon as the course ends, the employer has not benefited from his investment and could legitimately recover the £2,000 with a duly elaborated agreement. However, if the worker leaves his job after about 3 years, the employer clearly has the advantage of training for 3 years, i.e. if he tried to recover the £2000, this would not be applicable, as this would not reflect the loss of the employer. It is also likely that it is not applicable, as it is a trade restriction, and we will look at this issue below.
However, if the agreement is properly worked out, the employer can normally recover some of the costs to an extent that decreases over time, so that it would not have to repay 50% after the end of the course, for example, and 2 years after the end of the course. The figures on the sliding scale depend on the costs associated with it, and we can discuss this when designing contracts. A new employer may ask you to take a longer training period by extending the duration of your training contract to a maximum of five years. Thus, you may find that it takes longer to qualify when you change employers during your training. A training contract is essentially a document that defines the nature of your internship or internship. It is issued by your current or former university, or by your educational institution, and proves that the internship is part of your studies and training. The agreement is signed by the sending institution (university), the host company and you, the intern. Spain Internship cannot and will not offer training contracts; This is just a news article. Not only will your company not benefit in the short term from the training it has paid for, but it would end up paying again for the same training if it started a replacement again. Take into account the stuck costs inherent in any recruitment process and you can see how this could put a small business in a really difficult position.
