    I've still not heard anything, they phoned on 15/02/17 so this Wednesday coming will be 3 weeks. If I've not heard anything by then I'll phone for an update.

    I started the VQ3 course in January.

    I had my interview on the 17th of November and received formal offer along with a number of other documents a couple of weeks later which was approx. 4 weeks before my start date. Another colleague of mine who is on another course heard nothing for a number of months and was only sent information around 5 weeks before start date.

    We were both verbally given start date and base station over the phone soon after interview but the paperwork only came through 4 - 6 weeks prior to start date.

    Hi there, I had my interview on 25th Nov, I had a call later that day to say I was successful, then received a further call on the 14th Dec to tell me where I'd be based and that I had a 26th June start date. I still hadn't received any official paperwork by the middle of February, so after another few phone calls to try and sort something out I received an email saying that I now had a 3rd April start date. I work away from home so received my official letter and contract by email on the 23rd Feb.

    Hello, I called and attempted to speak with my interviewer, however at the time they were not in the building. I received a follow up email from her later that night stating that it would probably be a July start date......bit later than April that they originally suggested it would be.

    Sounds like I got the same email as you it was a generic email said should hear more information by end of march. I was told on phone that would be end of July for training. Not sure whether to go ahead and book C1 test as there's a long waiting list.....

    Sounds like a lot of folk are in the same boat. I had my interview at the end of Jan, found out next day that I had been successful and got an email a few weeks ago saying an update as to training dates would be sent out in 2-3 weeks (still waiting on training dates, on 4th week now).

    Jack/Karen what areas have you applied for/were you interviewed for? I'm going for Glasgow and was interviewed at Motherwell.

    I applied for Borders and my interview was in Edinburgh.
    Did they give u any idea of when u would be starting ur training?
    I would just like something in writing so that I can plan ahead :confused: in saying that it's taken nearly a year to get to this stage....

    Nope, like I say, the last I heard was an email about a month ago saying training dates where to be confirmed. Still waiting....

    It's good knowing I'm in, but I'd like to plan ahead too. Try and book a holiday and stuff which I don't want to do until I get a start date. They couldn't even give me an idea at interview, just said dates have TBC.

    I applied for Edinburgh and the borders with the hope to be placed somewhere in Edinburgh or the outskirts. The interview was also in Edinburgh at the beginning of February. I've since had a few emails back and forth with my interviewer regarding course dates etc. but they're still not able to give me any information that is 100% in terms of base station or course start dates. I was told i should hear something more conclusive by the end of the month.
