studies assistance programme/policy

The Department of Parliamentary Services (DPS) is undergoing a review of our Studies Assistance Programme/Policy and would appreciate other departments sharing their own programme’s/policies.

We are particularly keen on knowing the following:

  • Amount of paid (and unpaid) study leave that can be/is approved
  • Financial reimbursement amount
  • Any special considerations given under the programme/policy – such as for persons with a disability, first nations persons and so on.


We are more than happy to share the outcome of our review of these policies with those agencies that ask, but any assistance would be appreciated.

Please contact us at

Hi SAF Community
We’re looking at our current Studies Assistance policy and would like to see other agency’s policy to see if our offerings are current and/or need a refresh.
Things of interest are the annual amount, time off and criteria to assess equity.
