An adult who is a student, apprentice or trainee may not have to pay Council Tax. If that leaves only one eligible adult in the home, the remaining adult may be eligible for a 25% discount.
A student is defined as:
To qualify, an apprentice must be undertaking a programme of training which will lead to a qualification accredited by the National Assembly for Wales or the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority. The salary and/or allowance received must in total be £195 or less per week.
Disregards are awarded to persons under the age of 25 who are a youth training trainee and who are undertaking training through arrangements made under the Employment and Training Act 1973.
