Going on last year it opened in January, with an initial closing date of 28th February which was then extended in early March.

Yes, they're two different schemes! I applied to both last year.

Hi, am I right in thinking it's still not up. I emailed a while back and they said the same, it would be open end of Jan early Feb. I still can't find it so just want to check I'm not missing it?

FYI, an email I recieved today:

"Thank you for your enquiry. Due to a change in circumstance further information on the application opening time for DFID Entry Talent Programme 2019 will be available from April onwards. We apologise for any inconvenience this change has caused."

I can imagine Brexit uncertainty plays a role in the ‘change in circumstances’. There’s a lot of uncertainty in how DfID’s funding and therefore operations will be affected by Brexit. Likely that DfID’s operational and recruitment capacity will be based on its central funding. I guess that’s why an April date has been set.

This. I spoke to someone of this years programme at a career event and essentially nothing has been confirmed yet. There were 25 people on the 2018, can only imagine itll be even less when the next budget is out.

In the spending review DFID might just get absorbed by the FCO again...

Yes, I saw that too.

I really hope they'll offer this scheme again in 2019... I guess it depends on funding and Brexit.
Has anyone heard anything new from DFID about the scheme? Or... has anyone heard any rumors? :cool:

Has anyone signed up for any email alerts re when applications will be opened? I've signed up for a general alert on the civil service jobs page but does anyone know if there's any specific system for this scheme like the one that's available for the Fast Stream?

Hey, I'm looking to eventually apply to this program, not this year but in 2021 if it is still actually running. - Has anyone had any updates on whether it is running this year?
