    Anybody else still not heard anything regarding the status of their application? I didn't expect to hear anything over the weekend with it being bank holiday and all but kind of expected a yes or no today as to whether I'm attending an assessment centre or not, my chosen region was Yorkshire and The Humber if that makes any difference (in case anyone else with that region hasn't heard anything). I'm expecting it to be a no at this stage but a definite no would be better than being kept hanging.

    I've still not heard anything either. It's getting a bit frustrating now. Like you said it's better to know either way than have to keep waiting 😕

    Thanks mate, i hope you hear back soon. I was told that they do all the assessments in batches of candidates. It could be that they are just waiting for a few more candidates before sending out the next batch of invites.

    Good luck

    I hope so Just out of interest did the invite go into your inbox or junk folder? I keep checking both but obviously I'm alerted to any new emails in my inbox rather than junk folder. I presume I have't heard anything back as of yet as I was rather late applying for it due to me not seeing it until rather late on.

    Yes, I had completed them by mid April, I think the final day to submit them was April 19th if I recall correctly.

    I thought the closing date was 10th April. After completing the online tests i waited 4 weeks then received the invitation to assessment centre. So you've still got time.

    I think the 10th was the last day to apply for the apprenticeship then I had until the 19th (after recieving an invitation to complete said tests on the 12th) to complete the tests, I'm pretty sure I'd completed and submitted them by the 15th, sounds like I should just be patient and wait then! I was getting slightly concerned as it said you should hear back by the end of April, maybe they had more applicants than they thought

    I've applied for both too. I had my assessment centre in April and found out that I had got the job about 2 weeks later, but this is in Newcastle. I know there were about 200 places available for Newcastle, peterlee and brierly hill? I don't know if you've applied for those

    Yeah I mean it's a tad annoying getting it after the assessment centre but the only way it disadvantaged me was I could have focused on the 5 competencies they wanted instead of the 10 or so in the Civil Service framework

    Yeah true, if you have a wide range of experience it isn't too hard to think of an example for the questions they asked
