    That is dependant on your employer. When an apprentice gets to fas for the 2nd phase they get the rate relevant to their trade and its the same procedure in phases 4 and 6. One sticky with all thus tho is that the employer is not legally obliged to pay the recommended rate. That is an absolute joke and makes a mockery of the system.

    i think lads are getting seriously screwed in this, i know older people, parents that have gone back into the trades, and have struggled during the earlier phases, id imagine its still a struggle for young lads to survive on the current pay rates, particularly during those earlier phases.

    It can be hard for older people alright but i guess it is a choice they make themselves. For younger people the money for sparking is good so they would go through the phases without much of a financial struggle.
