    Really hoping for some news this week whether I'm even attending an assessment centre or not, it'll be about a month since I completed the online tests now, how long did you all wait once you'd completed the initial online tests?

    Have you heard anything today? I'm still waiting too. Do you think it has to be negative news at this point?

    I'm wondering why some people have already been accepted into the scheme and others haven't even been assessed yet.

    I applied on the closing date, (extended one) and completed the online tests on the last day also. Received an email around a week later inviting me to the assessment centre, which I booked around 2 weeks in advance, which took place a few days ago. When booking there was only one other date available a few days after the assessment centre I chosen. However, they could be making more available as people have mentioned.

    I know one of the assessors mentioned they were going back down south once, they finished the ones in North. So there's still hope!

    Best of luck either way!

    I'm the same. I've taken the online tests then had an email about 3 weeks ago saying that they would get in touch in 2 weeks time and I'm still waiting.. Does anyone know if they actually email you back even if you don't reach the assessment stage?

    That sounds about right. I went to the assessment centre on the 13th May which was the latest day available for booking and just heard back today saying I'd been accepted. On the email it said that all assessments should be completed by the end of May. So hopefully you'll hear something soon.

    I've just received an email after having an assessment centre on the 13th informing me that I had been successful. What I'm wondering is where do we get based when we receive a role? What I mean is, will they accommodate us by locating us near our home location? As I applied for the Midlands area as this was the closest to me (Nottingham), but after looking it's logistically impossible to get to Wolverhampton, Coventry or Telford for work in the morning by train. I've sent them an email but was wondering if anybody had any experience of this?

    Good luck to everyone waiting for their outcomes by the way

    If all assessments should be completed by the end of May then why are some people still waiting to hear if they are going to an assessment centre? They really should just send out emails saying that people have been unsuccessful at this moment.

    Great news! Well done! Yeah, to be honest id be surprised if they could turn around a response in four days, especially with two of those days being the weekend.

    They did ask me during my interview what would be my preference and if I would be willing to relocate. would think they would try to accommodate you and put you to the closest possible.

    Well done to people who have been accepted!

    Have to say, it is getting me quite down that I haven't heard anything back yet considering my assessment centre was over a month ago! Hope I'm not the only one in this position!

    My assessment was he 13th pf May so a pretty quick response! Thanks everyone! The reason I heard early was because my assessment centre was the last held in Birmingham. So I assume that you will hear when theyve finished in the area which you had yours keep your fingers crossed!
