    Hi, did anyone else use the NSA lambing list to find lambing placements when you did you're wex? I've found a couple near me so would prefer them and I want to email, but have no idea what to put... any tips??
    This was how I found my placement for last Feb half term 🙂. Start by telling them why you're writing (i.e. looking for a lambing placement) then talk a bit about yourself, whether or not you have relevant previous experience (and if not that you're keen to learn and don't mind getting your hands dirty). Also put in dates you'd be available obviously, and if the farm is close you could offer to drop by so they can meet you before they decide if they want to offer a placement or not. Hope this helps!

    Once it said 'document received' for the questionnaire on your portal, how long did it take for a decision to come through?

    Yep, that's what mine* had before it changed to document received. My references still have pending check.
    It shows they're working their way through the apps.

    Roughly how long did it take for your questionnaire to change to document received - I submitted mine ages ago now and it’s still saying pending check as the status. I’m a bit worried something’s gone wrong because it doesn’t have a date uploaded, whereas my references do along with pending check! Sorry and thank you!

    Neither my references or questionnaire have a upload date :s Not sure what's going on there!
    I believe I sent my questionnaire on the 23rd of October, and I'm pretty certain it only changed to 'documents received' today. Like I said, my references are still 'pending check' as well...so it's bit confusing, all in all :^)
