I have just spoke to student finance regarding help with course fees for PTLLS (preparing to teach in the life long learning sector) and there is no help.
But they did say there is help for DTLLS (diploma in teaching in the lifelong learnng sector) I think he said I can get £3,200 for maintence whatever that means even if I am working part time. And I think upto £1,500 if I am a parent.
I am just wondering how that will affect my house benefit and working and tax credits as I am a single parent.
Can housing benefit take all of that money into account when assessing my allowance?
So what subject do you teach? And do you mind me asking what qualifications you had before?
I have nearly completed my NVQ level 3 in business admin and hope to teach that. I will be starting PTTLS next month and hope to find work in a college after that. Have you got any tips on how to go about getting paid work in a college?
I hope its not too many questions, but I am very excited and slightly nervous hoping it will all go the right way.
