Educational Opportunities

CF recognizes that the skills and knowledge of its employees are critical to the success of the organization. The educational assistance program encourages personal development through formal education so that employees can maintain and improve job-related skills or enhance their ability to compete for reasonably attainable jobs within CF.

To maintain eligibility, employees must remain on the active payroll and perform their job satisfactorily through completion of each course.

While educational assistance is expected to enhance employees’ performance and professional abilities, CF cannot guarantee that participation in formal education will entitle the employee to automatic advancement, a different job assignment or a pay increase.

Employees are provided with educational assistance by the college in several ways. Many employees take advantage of this benefit every year. Three major categories of assistance are described in this section: tuition waivers, staff and program development and the Employee Assistance Program.
