Hi,

Just thought I'd start a thread for those applying to Frontline for 2022.

Applications open on October 4th.

Feel free to discuss the stages of the application process. It would also be great if people who have gone through the programme could contribute.

I saw the other programme earlier this year Step Up but didn't apply but just reviewed the eligibility requirements for this and it's definitely something I can apply and have been considering for a while. Did think of doing a straight two years Masters at University but I'm thinking a programme like this would be better suited...

Only concern for me is the local authority placements and driving. Wouldn't say driving is something I'm confident with but from reading the programme definitely need to get comfortable.

What experience do you have?

Thanks for starting this thread! I'd been checking all week for one, after hearing the applications would be opening in early October. What area will you be applying for?

My first choice is Westminster, London and second is Dudley. I went for local authorities that were rated 'good' or 'outstanding' by Ofsted. I attended the insight day so was able to apply a little earlier. I've sent off my application form, competency questions and completed the online tests.

The tests were okay, but I don't think you can really prepare for them. All of the choices they gave to situational judgement scenarios were valid, so I was kind of stumped at which one they expected us to choose. Good luck with your application!

I don't know how to drive but I'm planning on getting lessons in a few months. My first choice is London which might help with the driving thing a bit. I wanted to do a Masters but it's expensive and I don't think I'd have enough to live on, unless I move back home. I don't have much direct experience with children or work experience - I have some volunteering experience with charities though.

So exciting!!

I’ve just found out I passed the online test! Now to wait to hear about my application form and whether i’ve been invited for the video interview!🤞🏼🤞🏼

It was really interesting I thought! There were some where I didn’t think there was a ‘right’ answer and that you probably needed a bit more info to be able to know! And some that were completely opposite! I don’t think you can really prepare, apart from knowing the structure of the test and things!!
