    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...

    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 .

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

    Are those getting the letters HH or IM?

    Or do we have mixture again?

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