It states in employment law that employees are entitled to go on
training courses funded by the firm.  I don't know the up to date
legislation but it was pretty good when I was doing my union bit back
in the late 1990's.  It will have improved to greater extent by now. 
Of course, employers will still make it difficult for people, which is
totally wrong.
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Xmas may be over but,  PLEASE DON'T drink and drive you'll make it to
the next one that way.
