    Hi I am on my final year at uni and looking to apply for these programs.
    I would like to hear from anyone who has been successful at the application process and are in the program or has finished it already. Are you happy with the program?
    Any tips for the application process would also be truly appreciated.
    Could you please be kind enough to share your experience with us?
    Thank you so much in advance

    Ah it's coming up as 2014/2015.. maybe change it to 2017?

    I've sent off my application and am waiting to hear back to see if I've been invited to an assessment day. I'm pretty hopeful, but I've also applied for Frontline and have been put on the reserve list. I think this was due to an average result in the verbal reasoning test. I'm wondering if we have one of those at the assessment day for Think Ahead..

    I have applied to Think Ahead, received an email inviting me to take the Situational Judgement Test exactly three weeks after sending off my application.

    Frontline does sound interesting, however I do not have the UCAS points to apply

    Think Ahead really appealed to me though, so I'm really hoping to be successful!

    Just to let you know, Think Ahead doesn't have a 2014/15 cohort as it only started this year. I'm on the first cohort if you want any info!

    I got the wrong information from somewhere... never mind thank you for letting me know.
    I've tried to change the dates and I couldn't... I will try on my laptop later maybe is bcse I am on the phone.
    Can you tell me how did you find it so far? I know it's only a few weeks since you started but the first impressions are sometimes the true ones before our brains get used to the situation...are you placed in a trust or local authority? Did you get a case to look at yet? Sorry for all the questions just want to make sure it is what I think is.
    Many thanks again

    Hi there I presume you are doing a degree at the moment and in my opinion if you get the results they want 2:1 they will probably get you in the program (Frontline) if you are a good candidate and show that you have the right skills, so I would say you should apply and see.
    The guy who came to uni to tell us about the program gave us his email his name is Johnson, I would suggest you to email him and ask, I had emailed him a few times he always answer in a very friendly manner, good luck

    Hiya,
    I'm really enjoying it so far - it's very hard work, but it's worth it. I'm placed in an NHS trust, and I currently have four cases. Don't worry about asking too many questions, fire away!

    I leave in East Sussex so hoping to get a place in London as I believe is the closest location. They say South East region but don't specify where.

    I think there are some other placements in the south east but I'm not sure where, my geography of that area isn't great! There are definitely loads in London though

    Hi all,

    I didnt get through the Think Ahead process, although fortunately I'm much more passioante about Frontline! I am currently at the video interview stage! I'm really hoping to get through to the Assessment centre and eventually a place on the course but I am really rather nervous about the video interview. I wanted to apply for Frontline in 2014 but didn't feel I had enough life experience fresh out of University so I'm really hoping my experience from the past two years pays off.

    Let me know how you all get on.

    Gemma.
