During eligible rounds employees can submit direct reimbursement and seek pre-approval as part of 1 application.
When a manager or discipline group determines a professional development session that is necessary and/or highly sought after, and will benefit a number of staff , they are able to make a Group Application.

Any shortfall in funding due to an employee exhausting their individual allocation amount will need to be picked up by the Local Health Network or Statewide Service.
