As stated above, it all depends on the firm.
However, most posters on TSR tend to focus their applications on larger City firms. Such firms pay very healthy salaries to trainees in both their first and second years of training. They also pay GDL and/or LPC fees, as well as offering a maintenance allowance whilst studying (typically around £5,000-7,0000 each year).
Salaries vary during the two year training period, but the following link should give you a rough idea: http://www.rollonfriday.com/InsideIn...8/Default.aspx
As the above posted correctly highlighted, if one secured a TC at, say, a small high street firm, then salaries tend to be considerably less (around 18-20K).
Hope this helps.
