  • Further education and/or post-graduate studies are necessary to qualify the employee to continue his/her position or work within the organization, and such education is an integrated part of the working conditions
  • Further education and/or post- graduate studies are necessary for the employee to continue working as a government employee

The employer decide whether further education and/or post – graduate studies are necessary.
