Stressed out

Just got a sms from my boss. I thought I was working 6 months at pre school for someone on maternity leave. Im only on call so was very happy about it. But now she wants to give me a traineeship for 6 months. The course is meant to go over a year but she wants to fast track it. This way she saves money as the government pays for it. I now have to decide whether to do it or not. I was really hoping just to work the 6 months, save the money and use it towards going to america. I want to live over there as an au pair for a year. I only need about $3000. I will not get this with doing a traineeship. I will end up getting shit pay. Oh! Also, I dont get to go to a class each week, I have to work the days that the classes are. So I basically have to do the course myself.
I'm stressed. I feel like turning it down and just getting a shitty job to save up the money for america. I've wanted to do it for years but always chickened out.
I dont know. I'm torn up inside.....argh!!

-stressed skinny biddy :0)

Well that sucks. Especially with not getting the time to go to school - surely that is the most important thing about doing a traineeship? If you do a traineeship, does that mean you get paid more in the long term?

it actually doesn't! I will be paid the same as I am now being untrained! the only reason she is doing this is so she can get the government incentive and doesnt have to pay as much. Meanwhile I will have to work, do a year long course in 6 months and have zilch support.
