Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir or Madam:

I am writing to express my interest in attending a training course called ‘Introduction to Supply Chain’. I came across its advertisement in the newspaper. It’s a 6 month part time course starting 2nd December and classes will be held twice a week on week days in the evenings from 4 pm to 8 pm.

I am sharing this information because I am pretty much convinced that the course will not only help in enhancing my skills but will also provide more clarity on logistics. As you know, in exports logistics play a crucial role as correct methods would not only help us in cost reduction but also ensure safe delivery of end product.

Currently the organization is going through a lean period so I feel this is the best time to get some training. So I request you to kindly permit me to leave early twice a week to attend the classes. Also the fee for the course is quite high. Would it be possible for me to receive some funding from the employee learning fund?

Thank you for your time and support.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Faithfully,
