    When did you have your phone interview?

    I had mine on Thursday and they said they aren't making most of their decisions for another month or so when they've finished their interviews. They emailed today.

    How did yours go, sdjeha? What sort of activities did you do/ questions were asked?

    Hope you feel it went well!

    I doubt it, the assessments only finished mid last week. They did say they will be contacting everyone from the ACs the week beginning the 11th.

    Congratulations by the way Jack. I was at the first assessment centre and still not heard, so sadly I'm assuming I haven't got the job!

    Thanks Omni. When at the AC they said announcements will be made in the week commencing the 11th, so I guess you should keep your hopes up until then. Do you know how many people made it to the AC? I know they're offering 7-10 places on the L&M course but about 35 in higher apprenticeships across the 4 schemes.

    40 people made it to the AC, 4 different days of 10 people. And yes they said there was 10 places available.

    No nothing yet. At this stage I'm pretty much resigned to the fact I haven't gotten it so leaving people waiting this long is a bit ridiculous. Luckily I didn't put all my eggs in one basket so I have some other interviews lined up.

    When I went we were told there were 25 places but obviously that was a mistake. You did well to get on something so selective. Congrats! 🎉
