Money for resettlement

This is why a lot of the official ressetlement firms provide you with a course for a fixed fee. These firms know the rates for Subsitance and charge you the full wack, so for example they know you get £534 for the course but can claim another £1500 for subsistance (figures are vague, I left a few years ago). So they will offer you a course (bricklaying, computer maint etc) for £2034, but the course is residential and you must stay and eat on their terms. It may seem like a bit of a rip off, but as said before, try and get a decent course for £534. At least this way the companies make their money by charging you full wack, but you do get more than £534 worth of course.
Don't talk to clerks in your unit - they know f all about it.
Phone or visit the IERO's clerk at your AEC. They deal with this on a daily basis and can advise you according to your personal case.
Argeed with codger on that one for def!! Ring them direct as i went through my clerks and kept getting a dead end, not there fault as they dont deal with it but got all the answers i needed when phone the resettlement office.
I totally agree with the two posts above, I'm a clerk and I knew nothing about resettlement until I started going through it myself.

What IT_GEEK said is spot on, my course will cost me over £2800 for 4 weeks training, but most of that is hotel and food charges. All in all I'll pay about £130 out of my own pocket (and don't forget to use your ELC/SLC).

Book an appointment with your IERO at your AEC, they are usually really clued up and helpful.
