TA Pay and Jobseekers Allowance

Hi - Can someone please let me know what happens if someone who is unemployed joins the TA? Just the key points so I'm a bit more clued up please! I can't find a simple explanation anywhere else.

As I understand it, if you are on Jobseekers Allowance you can earn £5 a week but everything over that gets deducted penny for penny from your allowance?

Also, you can only work an average of 16 hours a week - so I assume that evenings and occasional weekends is OK but for a two week camp/course you'd have to sign off?

Would it affect any other benefits?
