Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

Is anyone here who's currently training finding that they're exempt from tax/NI as well?? I know trainees at one particular course centre are, but wondering how across the board this is. Everything I've read on the widening access scheme suggests it only applies to courses that started between 1999...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

According to this weblink http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/manuals/eimanual/EIM61200.htm and the quote below, Trainee Educational Psychologists training allowances do not have tax and NI deducted. Surely this also applies to Trainee CPs? :) What do you think? "In Year 1 the trainees are engaged under contract...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

My guess is that this was a particular scheme that ran for a particular time period, that is no longer running any more (from September 1999, to March 2013). I'm assuming that it would no longer apply to anyone being seconded for training, including nurses / AHPs, as well as psychologists. But I co...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

I wonder if there is a possibility of changing your tax code during training, so you are taxed less! I am going to give it a go once I start training in Sept and write a letter to HMRC, showing evidence of placement 3 days per week during term time. Hmm :? :?:

Re: First wage as a trainee - when?

I'm in the same boat as moonbeam so pretty sure I will have to start putting money aside until I get paid at the end of October! I was hoping to take some time off - when else do you have this much notice of a decent job set for 3 years?? But alas a friend is getting married in the middle of the mo...

Re: First wage as a trainee - when?

Ok thanks, I will contact HR. I'm guessing I will have missed the cut off date, so won't get paid until end of Oct. And now very concerned about how I will survive and pay the rent and bills in Oct on a 2 week salary!! Not everyone has credit cards, savings, a partner, or rich parents!! Great, no ho...

First wage as a trainee - when?

Hi, I'm just sorting out my finances for the next few months (hoping to squeeze a holiday and move out before I start training). I was wondering as a trainee when do you get your first wage? So I will begin training mid-Sept, would I get paid at the end of Sept, or get paid 1.5 months at the end of ...

Re: Reflections on 4th application and not on training

minimally prepared and got on. I couldn't even answer one of the questions! BUT because I had minimally prepared I was reflecting on each question rather than spirting out all my knowledge. My personality came across as well as my own views. Yeah can relate to this - not that I didn't read a bit an...

Hi :) that's great! I am still feeling the high. :D Do you have any idea when the start date might be? Where are you living? I'm currently living in Manchester, so not far, but have decided to move to Liverpool. I think there is a DBS check event in July, so hopefully see you there and all the rest ...
