You're safe: Employers can only deduct money for training courses if it was agreed in the contract or in writing beforehand. So in the unlikely event that they ask you to do so - you can refuse and politely point them towards the info from ACAS in the above link.

You gave one week notice. It seems they offered that you leave instead with zero notice, and you accepted that. You didn't have to accept it, but you did. That seems was a mistake on your side, but it's done now. The company has to pay for every day you worked. For the 11th, they have to pay either statutory sick pay, or what your contract says.

As they asked me not come back in, shouldn't I be entitled to Garden leave? In short - no.

A manager one time was passing on a bit of wisdom to me. If they ask me to saw this table in half, and will not give me a saw, but only this pen, I'll do it, but I will be very clear about how long it will take me. If they're good with that, then I'll get going. Explain the limitations, ask for accommodation. Be concise, precise, and detailed. Quantify, ...

How can I discuss with manager that current setup in effecting my performance and ability to do tasks, I know his answer will be that is that the best we can do, should I discuss or start looking else where?
