I work 0.6 and attend 3 training days each year. If they fall on days I wouldn't normally be in school, then that is my hard luck. I don't expect to paid extra for attending on a day off. However, if all 5 fall on days I am in school, I would ask which 3 I should attend and not turn up to the other 2, unless I feel they would be useful. Got to say, I am one of the old school who still hasn't forgiven Baker for taking 5 days of my holiday and imposed these 'training days' on me, especially when I can count on one hand the days which I feel have been useful.
