Why don't you get a temporary summer job to tide you over until you start you teaching job? Maybe waitressing or bar work? I am assuming you have teaching job to go to?

Temporary job (temp agency, seasonal work?) And cheap room in shared house until you get on your feet? Seasonal work that comes with accommodation?

Don't the holidays start this month, or early July, in Scotland? Could you get a bar job or work at a residential summer camp? It sounds awful - withholding the inheritance is surely illegal. Can you find out which solicitor dealt with the will and speak to them about whether you have any recourse to help (or at least say you will do this to your parents, because I bet any steps you can take would involve paying a solicitor!)

Are you in a teaching union? Try their legal section or see if they have hardship funds?

I think I'd seek out that residential camp to be honest!!

Would you be eligible for a bank loan or career development loan if you have proof of a job to go to?

Care work is easy to come by - minimum wage though.

Can you not contact PGL or something like that and see if you can get some work over summer?

Or work for a local authority for holiday summer schools and respite care etc?

Was your grandmother's wishes for you to have the inheritance specified in her will? Who was the executor of the will?

If you are done with them, and I wouldn't blame you because financially abusive is abusive, then a legal letter/advice about the money might help? Not following the will properly is a huge legal issue for the executor if you kick up.

Can you not just get a job and hand in your notice in a couple of months? And keep quiet about the September job not that I've never done anything similar

It does seem weird your parents have money that is yours and won't give it to you. Have you asked them why?

Overdraft? Credit card?

TBH if you could get hold of around £800 I'd nip off to south of France and do the Camino de Santiago. It's cheap, takes just over a month and would be a good escape.

Career development loan? Then a solictor?

Hang on, why do they want you to wait until September?

peacoat Sat 06-Jun-15 20:58:39

Oh bugger! Seriously, can you not talk to your bank and get some kind of line of credit?

you might still be just in time for a summer camp job, if you get your skates on;

for example

or here

Try the camps again - they will be desperate to replace people who signed up but have dropped out (many because the PGDE has nearly killed them and they are too tired!). Also try Eurocamp and similar, plus places like Crieff Hydro - they positively do not want you for the autumn as they will be quiet when school starts again.

Would any of the student services be helpful? Do the careers service have details of summer jobs, or does the student union help with advice on financial difficulties?

roughtyping Sat 06-Jun-15 21:02:28

OP are you central belt? I picked up bar work and call centre work in the summer between PGDE and probation year. Are you able to get to probation school without a car? I assume you know LA if not school yet?
