You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You work for a company. You have seen some information online about a training course that would be useful for your work.
Write a letter to your manager. In your letter
• give details of the course
• say how the course would be useful
• explain how the company could help you do this course.
I am writing this letter to inform you about a week long course which I feel would benefit my work at the department of Software Development.
It is a seven-day intensive program being offered by the State Information Technology, and is scheduled to start on 17th of this month.
The course is on the programming language: Java and I believe it would enhance my potentials in technical lead. I came to know that there are 10 new projects which are on queue, and if I am updated with the language, I can provide expanded technical expertise.
As the training is full-time, I cannot attend the office during the period. Hence, it would be greatly appreciated if you could avail me a paid leave till 26th of this month. I believe my absence would not affect the normal functioning of the department as most of my colleagues have agreed not to take leave during these days.
I look forward to hearing from you soon,
