Hi,I've just been given a start date to commence my tdc training. Has anyone already started their training? If so, should I do any particular research/pre-reading? I have also heard that their will be an exam two weeks into the course, how challenging is this? Finally, what's your timetable like? And good luck to everyone else still going through the recruitment process.Thanks
Congrats!
When did you apply? How long was the recruitment process for you?

Can I just ask when your start date is? what dates did you take your day 2 health assessment and day 3?
My start date is the 25/02/19, which I received at the end of January. My day 2 was at the beginning of October and my day 3 was just before Christmas in December.

If your day 3 was in December then what they keep telling us about the Day 3 assessment not being ready and experiencing delays can’t be true. It’s so frustrating, no one at recruitment seems to know what’s going on

I applied at the end of June as was given a start date at the end of January to start on the 25/02/19.
So it was about 7/8 months, however I don't think they started giving out day 1 dates until the end of August, so took them 2 months to sift through applications. Also, after my day 2 I had to wait a while for the day 3 as they had yet to finalise what we were going to do in the assessment.
It was and is a lengthy process but hopefully not everyone's will take as long as mine

I applied mid-June and still waiting for Day 3 🙄
How did you find the Day 3 assessment? Was it another long day with multiple tasks like Day 1?

Oh no. If you don't already have a day 3 date and don't get one soon I would suggest calling them if you haven't already to find out when you are likely to get a date or if there are any results you are waiting for.

The day 3 assessments were okay I would say though that before you go make sure you prepare for the interview, thinking of things you've done before. The day itself wasn't too long, only about 3/4 hours. It was also slightly less hectic. Plus when I did mine there was only 6 of us there.

Hope this helps and good luck with everything.

I spoke to someone who said it was very helpful. Does everyone get invited to that, or is it just females and BAME applicants?

Can anyone give me an example of what the training timetable looks like? Recruitment can't give me any information. I'm, due to start in April.

What sort of guidance did you get for day 3 to help you prepare?

Was the day quite similar to day 1 in terms of structure and exercises/tasks?

Hi

Just wondering if anyone has done their day 1 assessment centre since the start of this year and how long it took to hear whether you'd passed or not. Had mine in February so I'm wondering what kinda time scale to expect.

Thanks!
