Band 8 IELTS letter sample
Dear Mr. Kumar,
I am writing this letter to request a leave of absence from work in the month of June 2019. I have been preparing for the Process Quality Program for which I have been selected. This is a professional certification in the field of Electronics Engineering. It took me tremendous efforts) to get selected for this qualification and this is a once in a lifetime oppurtunity as only 10 candidates are selected in an year.
On my return, I will make sure that the piled up work is completed and aligned as soon as possible, even if it means working overtime and on the weekends. The numerous skills acquired during the training will help me benefit the company by making process improvements in the office environment.
I hope my leave application will be granted.
I look forward to hearing from you.
