  1. I will take a look and see what I can gather from it. They did get funding for him to begin with. Originally, he was placed in this workplace by the college - they helped him find this job. To be honest, every time I have visited our local CRB, it is shut - even during their opening hours... As he earns so little, he may be entitled to legal aid so I think I will see if we can get a lawyer to look at it if you think that is best.
  2. Sorry Emmzzi - I misunderstood your question. I thought you meant an apprenticeship agreement was a different document to the contract of employment.
  3. Sorry, I should also mention that his contract of emloyment states that he is an apprentice - but yes they did pay him more than a minimum apprentice salary. Not sure this makes a difference? Thank you
  4. Hi again, I do get your point - it seems that this could be quite a mooted subject - I will see if I can gather funds to pay myself. I have told him to start looking for another employer. It just seems a shame because he loves his job and takes great pride in it too. Many thanks
  5. Hi Pusillanimous, Yes, the employer attended the interview at college with him and booked the course for him. They raised a purchase order and provided the numberto the college as evidence of intention to pay. Now he has completed the course, it appears the purchase order has not been approved... I will go to the college Monday and see if I can get a copy of the enrolment form.
  6. You would think so right? But the other guy that was an apprentice and passed his exams (the year before my son), got put straight on to the same salary as the other people. They do the same work load regardless of experience. My son is left on call by himself without supervision and all work is divided equally. Thanks again.
  7. He only has a contract of employment from a few years ago - given to him by the original employer. Since been TUPE'd twice.
  8. Thanks Emmzzi for replying. 1. He is on NMW 2. The fees are £2k - he cannot afford this and unfortunately, neither can I. 3. The decision to no longer attend his course was not made alone and reversely, was fully supported by his employer. Long story short, the course was not right for the career path that both the employer and he had wanted for him. 4. Until yesterday, nothing was put in writing which is why I told him he should write to HO HR department. Is this just what we should be doing and can do no more - or can we do something more? Many thanks again....
  9. Hi everyone, I appreciate any help you can give - I have two questions: 1. My son was employed as an apprentice Gas and Heating Engineer and was sent on day release to college - all good. After some months, he was no longer on day release for various reasons, including that he no longer wanted to attend as he discovered a different course he could do that would be more beneficial. Shortly after, he was then TUPE'd over to another company and in September of this year, he attended a course to become a qualified Gas & Heating Engineer. During his course, his company was taken over
  10. Hi everyone, Just hoping that someone can please advise me... So, as you know we requested the SAR. After much batting backwards and forwards because they could not locate my partner on their systems, we finally got a letter dated 15th November 2012 stating that they had now located him and they were processing his request. This was over 40 days ago and I am wondering if I should chase them, or go back to court right away to get this now struck out. If the latter, can you also tell me exactly what I need to do i.e. what forms to fill out? Thanks so much.
  11. "Yes he did bring up SAR issues, but before he went into court, the lawyer for the defence provided" Sorry, that should have said, the Lawyer for Welcome provided - not defence because that is my partner. Doh!
  12. Hi DX, Yes he did bring up SAR issues, but before he went into court, the lawyer for the defence provided him with the personal loan reference number so we could request the SAR with the correct number. It was an absolute joke to be honest. The Judge had really made up his mind before he even entered the court room - that much was obvious. The lawyer had absolutely no paperwork with him whatsoever - he called someone else in the court waiting area to get the account number. We have written to welcome again to request the SAR, quoting the number, so we will see what they come b
  13. Thank you Rob. My partner decided he had to do this himself - worried me slightly because I have been dealing with all this for him. Suffice to say, the judge would not set-aside the judgment. He said that by paying the CCJ, my partner had not helped himself. He asked what would have happened if he had not paid the CCJ and the judge said that a bailiff would likely have been sent around, or an attachment of earning order made. So, I am, as always, confused really. It seems as thought he was damned if he did, and damned if he didn't. Anyway, we a
  14. Hi, just a quick update. We have a hearng date to try to have the CCJ set-aside, that next Tuesday. Apparently, I may not be allowed in and even if I am I will not be permitted to talk...! still waiting to hear back about the SAR although they have written to my partner saying that 'whatever action has been taken, can be undone' and would he like to discuss with them? They were no help at all before and I think we will wait for the SAR documentation before contacting them. Hopefully have some good news next time I post.
