Hey there, I am 17 and going to study my second year of college.
I will hopefully be studying Early Years Childcare. However the course fee is £200 for books,CBR check,Placement t-shirt etc...

How ever I only have around £18 and I can't seem to get a job, I'm constantly looking for one but no one has anything going around.

I would like to get £200 by the end of summer but obviously, with out a job its going to take a little longer.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to raise this kind of money?

    Why start another thread when you have good advice/information from your first.

    That's not the way it reads to me and, as someone who took the time and trouble to help you, I'm afraid to say that I don't like your attitude.

    Well you didn't really tell her much that was helpful did you, lecturing her about how her parents should spend CTC and CB won't really help her if they won't/can't spare the money. They may feel keeping a roof over her head is more important.

  • This really isn't helpful. Again no one is listening to what i am saying >.<
    I've told the people time and time again >.<
    I need ideas not lectures about things i already know,and them not listening when i have anwersed them.

    I don't mind that the money is used for bills and stuff because we're having a hard time with money & I live here, so its only fair that "I pay a bit"

    There was a variety of information and ideas suggested, not just mine.

    Not everybody knows the amount of money their parents receive to support their children in education or that tuition fees are free when under the age of 19 or that you cannot get a CRB for yourself.

    All good stuff.
  • im not getting a cbr check on my own!
    thats what i've been saying

    Are you applying for the bursary as suggested on your previous thread?
    Can you put a notice up in your church offering to do gardening, carwashing, housework, dogwalking etc... for a fee? I've always found that the churches I have attended are supportive when it comes to these kinds of things.

    Why are you paying so much for a CRB check? Can you speak to the college to see if they'll waive the processing charge? (£50 is not 'half price'). An enhanced CRB check costs £44, a standard is £26 - http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Employment/Startinganewjob/DG_195811

    Is your church organising a standard or an enhance check? - If it's enhanced the college may be more willing to accept it.
