Just sat my stage 2 today and was lucky enough just to have to do the MMI and DMI. All went well, think I covered everything I should have.

The one thing that surprised me was the training wage. Was anyone else slightly shocked?

All in all I've still got my fingers crossed for the good news. I don't mind looking at my finances to make it work. Short term loss long term gain I suppose.

Anyway the waiting game continues. Fingers crossed for some good news!

I was surprised too. I Kew it was £20k for the first 11 weeks but I had heard it would go up to £35k for 6 months, then £52k from there.

However I was told 20k for 11 weeks, then 25k for 12-14 months which is much lower and longer than I'd hoped for...

It varies between IM & HH. I’m sure Stigy put up the two different pay scales on here a while ago.

Nice one , looks like this course has a lot of southerners on it , kind of hoping it's being run in Ipswich rather than Crewe , but what will be will be .

Have you not been informed as to where your coarse is being held in the letter you received then?
