How much do you get paid during training

Postby hassall2406 » Fri Jan 01, 2010 4:28 pm

Hi guys and happy new year.

I was just wondering how much you get paid whilst you are training? Do they stop you any money for for accommodation, food etc whilst at newbold? Also what are the working hours whilst your are training, and do you get paid the unsocial hours?

Thanks again

Unless they've changed it (and who knows nowadays) you still get your normal pay rate while your in training. No stoppages for bed and board, quite the opposite in fact as you should be able to claim for mileage and subsistence. Newbold times are 0800 to 1700 in class, rest of the time is your own. The unsocial hours payment should still count as your away from home and onsite all your time there, but its a new thing so can't say for definite.

Good luck and enjoy yourself there.

I've had a full months pay now and can confirm you get full wages Inc unsocial hours and local allowance whilst in training. Days are 0800 - 1700 at newbold.

I hope NOMs management don't see this post, local allowance and unsocial hours whilst in training = cost cutting

Also, you can claim your expenses whilst you are at college, so you get paid for staying over night and for your travelling (fuel, taxis, trains etc) :slbg:
