    Has anyone actually heard ANYTHING about the induction date. I'm going up to the place of my posting on 1st sept for id checks, that's how far behind it is for me. I get the feeling it's all a bit of an organisational shambles this year. Turned down a good uni place, hope I don't regret that decision.

    I was told on phone that October start candidates will be on the induction on 29th/30th October.

    My induction date for fast track will be on 18/19 September. My references were contacted this week and I presume all my checks were done this week too. Just need to hear from my line manager now.

    You will get a confirmation welcome email which will provide you some links for the induction with login details.

    Hope you all hear back soon. It's been quite a drag to say the least.

    Emailing worked for me, give your reasons etc and send them your postcode so they can see where you are and what options they might have for you.

    Who do you email for this?

    I've been based down in London but if I can get somewhere closer it would be a lot better.

    Thanks Arnie and Mr Dc for reply. From what I have heard there is an induction day in mid October, which I assume ids for those of us with an October start. Clear as pea soup.
    I just think it's a shame that someone on the fast track Facebook page doesn't write something like. "Some of you are starting in September, some in October depending on the departments you have been assigned to and there will be induction days in both of those months." It would make things much clearer to everyone. See what happens when you leave it to the grown ups!!

    Hey!
    Does anyone else still not have much information on their placement?
    I only know my location.
    I've been emailing them twice a week since June on multiple email addresses.
    It's so frustrating since I'm supposedly starting this month some point.

    I have no clue either, however today I received an email telling me my security check has been cleared so hopefully I'll receive more info soon.
