hi, Posted in employment too but no traffic, hopefully someone here has some up to date info/experience
last time I claimed MA and was allowed to study during my leave as it wasn't training through work (though was really hard to finally get that info confirmed)
I have some vague idea that volunteering is allowed on SMP but not MA but not sure where that comes from????
I will prob get SMP this time but may be MA so asking about both
can I study? it is not through work so not "keeping in touch" days. My job is a zero hours contract and I am job hunting, if I can do one morning a week during mat leave at college it'll greately help my chances when I re-commence job hunting after mat leave
and can I volunteer? I do volunteering anyway but would be great to keep it up as at the end of mat leave I'll be looking for a new more regular job
