I am currently looking to pursue a career in finance through apprenticeships. One of the terms and conditions of becoming an apprentice is that "a provider must not claim funding for individuals who: Are self-employed as a sole trader". I am currently learning forex trading and I am looking to start earning some side income from this while I do an apprenticeship. From what the terms and conditions state I am unaware of whether I would need to register myself as self employed as a sole trader. If I start an apprenticeship and I am forex trading would I be eligible for funding?
