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.

Yours Sincerely,

Harshpreet Kaur

    Dear Mr Ramesh,

    I am writing this to request you to grant me time off work for one week(10/03/2020 to 16/03/2020). To be more precise, I have enrolled myself for a ‘Cloud Architect’ certification and, on next week’s Saturday, I have a formal examination regarding it. Thus, I am planning to devote the remaining time to concentrate on my studies for the assessment.

    Once I have taken the exam, after that, I will try my best to extend the working hours by 2 hours per day to balance the off work that I will take. Moreover, this qualification will not only be going to prove as an asset for our organisation but also for me as well as it will boost my career progress. Additionally, after completing this certification, I would become a certified cloud architect and, as a result, it would help to attract more business to our organisation.

    I am looking for an affirmative response.

    Yours sincerely,
    Balraj Singh

    Dear Mr Peter,

    I am writing to let you know that I would like to take a 10 days leave to finish the thesis for my Masters Degree in Telecommunications Engineering.

    I talked to my colleague Jadesola, about the transmission networking I am working on and she has promised to help complete it before my return. Although after I resume work, I will review Jadesola’s input on my projects to see if it conforms with my way of work and the company’s standard before turning over the projects to my line manager for review.

    Apparently, a completion of my Masters Degree qualification will help the company secure more telecommunication contract jobs as we weren’t able to do in the past since none of our current employees has the required qualification. This qualification is what I am bringing to the company.

    To summarize it all, I would like to take some time off to complete my Masters Degree qualification and my colleague will help out with pending projects while I am away.

    Thank you for your consideration. I will be glad if my leave is approved.

    Yours Sincerely,

    Adeolu Alatishe
