Hello to anyone else who has applied for this scheme I've passed the online tests and have now been invited to complete some video interview questions.

Does anyone know if there is a limit on prep time once you view the interview questions? Or can you take as much time to prepare as you like? Also, does anyone know what questions are likely to be asked?

Thanks!

Hey, I'm the same and heard back today so also interested in this.

I would assume, as it's only two questions, that they are likely to be "Why the Role?" and "Why Go-Ahead Group?" although I can't be sure.

I'm assuming we have as much time as we want to prepare an answer seeing as the guidance suggests writing a script for the answers! Not sure yet though, I'll probably complete mine tomorrow

Yeah that's what I was thinking - for now have prepared for the questions above and will probably do mine tomorrow as well!

Just completed it this morning. You have 2 mins to read the question, 2 mins to answer for each question. If you wanna retake the question you get time to listen back to your previous answer and then an extra 5 seconds to prepare yourself, so I'm not sure how you would be able to write a script.

There were a couple of dates you could book ranging from 2-3 weeks time
Hopefully you hear back this week then if you completed your VI a day after me. Let me know if you get an AC invite!

Got my invite through so booked in for early April - has anyone got any further info on the day through yet? Noticed there wasn't much detail on the confirmation email.

Nope not been given any information at all since booking. I'd assume we'd get a more detailed email about the AC activities closer to the time

For anyone who's already done the AC how did it go? Also I'm a little confused as to which companies they're expecting us to have knowledge of? Is it the Go-Ahead Group or GTR? Because all of my emails are from GTR but it still hasn't distinguished between Bus and Rail for me when I put my preference as rail.

Same I heard back about an interview less than 48 hours after the AC, very surprised! It looked like they offered us all of the interview slots for the role, which looked ~ 20? But idk how many places there are for the scheme in total
