Good news! We have now received confirmation from HMPPS Employee Relations that they will provide paid additional facility time for one full day for professional development for those of Napo’s NPS members who are attending our AGM on the Friday 11th October.
We are assuming that as with last year, requests to take this facility time will still be subject to business requirements and would therefore advise members to record any professional development time granted properly on their development logs and discuss it as appropriate with their line managers.
Napo has now writen to CRCs seeking similar agreement and already MCT Nova have agreed to match this for members working for London CRC. We will keep branches updated with further responses.
