You have to be careful with paternity leave as you have to inform your employer 15 weeks (I think) before your other half is due. Had an issue with my boss about it as he wanted to go on holiday at the same time.

If I end up with 17 weeks away training, I think I won't be telling the heavily pregnant wife! I would be getting a good kicking off her.

Quick question, does any one know if they give full pay for the 2 weeks pertanaty leave or is it just statuary pay from the government?


17 weeks is fibre jointing but most of them allready knew beforehand however one lad who was from london thought he was going to london centre after yarnfield and was told on day 1 he was going up to bolton after,quite the suprise,u wouldnt b away for 17 weeks anyway but u would b in yarnfield for 2 weeks then bolton.paternity came up,u have to disclose due date straight away and its only gov minimum around £130 a week i think he told this lad but it cant clash with ur end of training as there will be hell on,the most important week is week 11(fvr)12(calomi)or 17(f/j) as theres a final exam in that week before u go live

Cheers for that info mate, helps put my mind at ease! I will be able to give more than 15 weeks notice as she not due till Oct 20ish and I start the 19th of June. If it fell at the end of training I would just defer my pertanaty any way, can take it at a later date. smile
