Unauthorised Absences

A total of 10 consecutive days of unauthorised absence can result in exit from the programme, so please keep us informed.

Authorised Absences

Trainees can have time off on compassionate grounds, for medical appointments and interviews, etc.  

Please tell staff at the Blueberry Academy before these appointments so that we know the reason for the absence.


Trainees can have authorised holiday from their programme - please discuss this with the Learning Co-ordinator or Principal. (Trainees with all year round timetables can have more flexible leave arrangements).
