    Hi everyone,

    I heard back about the project management scheme on Friday. It was 4 weeks after I attended my assessment centre. I called the recruitment department a week before and asked how long it would take though and they let me know, so I'd advise doing that to stop you wondering!

    Good luck!

    I had mine 2 weeks ago and had LU guys there too, they said towards the end of May at the latest. Probably give them a ring or send them an email if you want a time frame

    I wasn't sure really. The schemes are so competitive so I didn't want to get my hopes up. I just tried my best.

    Congratulations I know I haven't made the cut and got the job... the bar was too high everyone was really really good.
    A bit nervous about calling them! Hahaha! Well done! Did you know how many people they were recruiting in your specific apprenticeship you applied for.
    Sorry a thousand questions I know!

    It's ok! You never know, someone may look good but not perform so well in the interview. I did ask how many places they had but my interviewer said she didn't know yet as it depends how many people are suitable/ funding etc.

    Also don't be nervous about calling. It'll just be a member of the recuriment team so they won't know anything about you specifically they'll just be able to give you some details about when they'll be telling everyone on your scheme. I don't think I even had to give my name!

    I'm not sure if I need health checks for my scheme. The lady on the phone just said I'd be receiving my contract in the upcoming months.
