  • they are receiving training leading to a qualification accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority
  • they get a salary or allowance (or both), which are in total less than £195 gross a week (before deductions - we don't count bonuses and overtime); and they can expect to earn substantially more when they are qualified.
