Where can I get an A1 form?
I've been asked by my work placement to produce an A1 form to prove I'm still eligible for UK social security while I'm in France. Does anyone know how to get one as I'm having trouble finding anything about it.

The HMRC has some information about this http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/international/ni-abroad.htm
However the impression I am getting is that you are only eligible for UK social security whilst abroad in Europe if you are still paying UK income tax. This would mean you were still working for a UK company whilst abroad, i.e. your company had sent you to work in France. I assume this is not the case therefore I don't think you are eligible for social security.. However you might be best contacting HMRC by emailing or calling them to get some more information.
