DWP pre employment checks delay ( job coach)

Hello,

I was wondering what the average wait time for the pre employment checks to be completed and returned?

I am currently on week 7.. has anyone else waited this long?

Also, do they deliver training in batches?

Any information would be much appreciated. Thank you

Hiya! I’m going in to my 8th week and still patiently waiting 😂 if I don’t laugh about it, I’ll cry! I’m campaign 611. Went to verify my ID last week so I’m hoping I hear something this week to say they are done. Can’t wait to get a start date, it’s been such a long process.

Oh right, I'm exactly the same 🤣

What area have you applied for? I haven't been asked to bring ID yet.

My checks are still in progress.. I'm glad to hear it's not just mine that calms some nerves.. a little 🤣

I’m Lancashire, what about you?

I think they wanted to see mine because my passport was expired and was in my maiden name which didn’t help lol so I submitted a few different documents to verify who I was. They only contacted me last Monday to do it, and I went to the job centre I’ll be working at (eventually!) to verify the docs I submitted. I do hope they are completed soon and they give a start date, the waiting is killing me!

I'm currently on week 4 of pre-employment checks. I was hoping not to wait for 7 or 8 weeks.
