    It is a shame the first year pay of apprenticeships are still painfully low, it was a reason why I did not not take one up.

    You can top your income up from them with what was Working Tax Credits which was what I did, so don't write them off entirely. Also consider its a higher weekly figure than you'd ever get on JSA.

    What about Uni students whom have paid £9000+ for 3 years, now paying 1 year at £8000+ to finish their Education and Social Science's, and for that I have the 'privilege' working most of this year full time teaching in schools, doing all the extra hours/work paid teachers do as well as my uni work unpaid.......Thank you 'The bank of Mum and Dad' !
