I'm going to do the full 2 years of the NVQ Level 2 in Plumbing and Heating and I would like to move out of my parents and town as soon as possible. The thing is, it looks like you can barely survive on apprentice wage which is literally below minimum wage (£3.05) and even under 18 year old's working at mcdonalds get it higher (£4.05) and they're suppose to have the lowest being the youngest age group. I want to move down to London and I'm from the North East of England so the cost of living is going to be dramatically higher in London than over here. Could you do a fast track course for the NVQ Level 3 where I could do it at any time longer I have the money to pay for it? If not can you at least do it part time? It seems like it would be better to do that then 2 years of living below minimum wage in London which sounds like hell and a lot of stress.
