    Hey there.

    Has anyone else applied for the BT apprenticeship scheme that recently was launched again this year?

    I applied for B&Bs IT and was wondering if anyone has gotten past the video interview stage, or even been hired. Or if anyone from previous years can give a few hints.

    I passed the video interview and got this email on the 7th Feb 2017:

    Dear Waqar,

    We’re pleased to tell you that you’ve passed our initial screening. We’re progressing your application for the BT Apprentice Programme to the next stage of the recruitment process, which is where we consider your application against others for an Assessment Centre.

    Our assessment centres take place between March and August. Unfortunately due to the high volume of applications we receive it’s not possible for us to invite all candidates who reach this stage to attend an assessment centre. We invite candidates to assessment centre based on how well they've done in the earlier parts of the application process and how much of a match they are for the roles we have available.

    If you're successful in receiving an invite to an assessment we’ll be in touch to provide further information about the role we’re considering you for and with additional details about the day.

    As we arrange hundreds of assessment centres, it does take some planning, and there may be a delay in us letting you know whether you've been successful at this stage or not. However, we'll send you regular updates to let you know if you've been considered for an assessment centre place.

    We’ll be in touch with an update as soon as we can. If you have any questions before you’ve heard from us please email x

    Until then, thank you for your patience and well done again on making it this far.

    Best wishes,

    Hi there I am at the video interview stage, a bit nervous to be honest and a fairly camera shy. Do you have any tips for the video interview, and could you elaborate a bit on the questions they asked you? Thanks, very much appreciated.

    Hi there.
    I did the interview already, unfortunately I did not pass as apparently my answers were not good enough, I applied to TSO IT as well.

    They did say it was only one application per year, and they said it again on the e-mail they sent but they said I can apply next year.

    Got an email today from BT. Saying that they haven't forgotten me and they are still considering me for an assessment centre. They said that they will update me in two weeks.

    Getting really nervous now.

    Really want this apprenticeship.

    In Sha Allah I will be successful.

    I applied for the Higher HR apprenticeship in London, do you know what the assessment day will consist of?

    I'm just hoping we will be given appointments soon.

    Not really. I think that they will consist of a few tests. I think you might have to do a presentation. There may also be group based thing.

    I don't even know if I will be invited to an assessment centre. I really want to join BT, In Sha Allah , we will both be given appointments.

    This may seem like a daft question but are you supposed to introduce yourself in a video interview if it goes straight into questions?

    The first question was what your hobbies and interests. I firstly introduced myslef and then talked about my hobbies and interests
