Paul, GMP don't let you choose to take any leave at all until you've finished your 10 weeks with a tutor. You do get 2 one week holidays during the initial training but you'll be told when these are when you start - I got 10 weeks in and the week before going out with a tutor. Basically you get a week off either side of the big law input. I think I was told mine at the induction evening but don't quote me on that. Hope that helps.
