Hello, I submitted the same documents as you did. I received an email after 3 weeks, and then a telephone call the day after asking me to complete. I received a further phone call the day after inviting me to an assessment centre.

I also don’t have a Grade C in English but will complete the functional test if I get accepted.

Best of luck.

When you say phone call, do you mean you have a telephant assessment? Or is it to notify you to take online tests?

Took me 3 weeks to hear back from my initial application, and I had my assessment centre today! Try not to worry about it taking a little time, you'll get there!

Hi all,

I qualified as a Social Worker this year - took the undergraduate route. I'm just wondering what the Think Ahead application process entails and how different it is to the degree route?

Good luck all!

I haven't heard anything yet. Hoping to hear something this week. Otherwise, just chalk it up to another rejection.

I'm kinda hoping I get through to next stage as unfortunately I can't get funding to study for another undergraduate or postgraduate degree. So it's my only way in.

I haven't even got through to online tests, but it's I'm kind of assuming that my chances are slim if they are leaving it to the end of the 3 week gap to respond.

I went to the assessment centre last week on the 12th December. Got an email today informing me that I was unsuccessful😔. Didn't receive any feedback so I have done the same and asked for some. Its very disheartening but I'm trying to see it as a positive and will use the feedback for next year. Good luck to those who have applied and well done to those who have been accepted.

Hello guys.

New to the forum but thinking to apply for the Think Ahead programme and the step up which is currently closed till February 2019.

Has anyone who has applied for the Think Ahead programme managed to get past the sift stage. The reason I ask is I have a 2:2.

Thanks

I called the their recruitment line and they advised they still accept people with 2.2 but have to have additional qualifications or special reasons to why they got 2.2. They also said they don't look at the degree and degree grade when looking at the applications. Hope that helps

Hi, did you apply in the end? Is anybody attending one of the assessment centres in London in February? If anybody has attended one already I would really appreciate any advice for the day, what go expect and how to be well prepared. I've also been told that I will receive an activity to prepare one week prior. Does anybody know much about what this might entail?Thanks in advance and good luck everybody.
