    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! 🎉
    There are 35 places across the whole of higher apprenticeships. Glad you have some other interviews, are they for similar schemes? & thanks very much!

    That makes sense. I've got one for the commercial civil service scheme and another with a law firm so fingers crossed one of them comes through.

    Through to the assessment centre now, made up!
    Hi, read your threads and very much hope you were successful. X
    Please can you tell me what happens at the assessment centre.? How many candidates were there?
    Did you have to do more written tests? Any presentations as I'm nervous speaking in front of a lot of people?
    Would appreciate your feedback. X

    Hi, I was successful thanks! 3 months into my role now and love it. Are you going to apply for the 2017 intake?

    There were 10 people at my AC and they took on 17 apprentices into this role. My AC was an interview based on my past experiences and how I've learned from them etc, a role play (a life in the day of a manager sort of thing) and a group task where you are given a problem with limited information and have to solve as a foursome. However, this probably changes for each AC. No presentations, no more written tests, however I'd suggest you become practiced in presenting in front of a crowd as there's LOTS of it in this job.
