    I would be interested to see if they give VQ students an option at going this route. Probably not the best for people already on the road but for those due to start it might be good.

    3 years funding your own living costs at Uni a bit daunting. Wonder how station allocation will work? Most likely knock on will be the difficulty in techs progressing to paras if stations fill with direct entry paras.

    I don't think this will affect applicants going via the Tech route at all. It's a completely separate course that isn't even being held at the Ambulance Academy at GCU. Student paras also don't have to have a driving licence, so they will most likely be third manning whilst out on the road on placement. Wonder if they will be issued with SAS uniforms or if GCU will make their own one to differentiate them from service staff.

    Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see how this new route takes off.
