As you may be aware you can have £10,£20 or £30 paid each week for attending further education depending on the household income.
My son who currently attends 6th form dosnt qualify for EMA, as parents we apparantly earn "too much" (yeah right).
Anyhow i think the whole EMA set up is a farce, i think all kids in further education should get it. He has a couple of mates that earn the full £30 a week plus they have part time jobs & on top of that, they can also earn Ema bonuses for full school attendence. So whilst they are raking it in, we are having to pay for our son, we have a daughter as well that will be in the same situation.
anyone else find themselves in this situation ? be good to hear comments from parents & students alike as i would be interested in the general consensus.
