Trainee PWP 2015

Post by DMB88 » Mon Apr 20, 2015 11:59 am

Hi All,

I am itching to leave my current AP position and am hoping to apply for trainee PWP posts this year.

I was wondering if anyone knows when London and Sussex Trainee PWP roles will be advertised. From memory, I think the London roles were advertised around May/June but I can't quite remember.

Any help would be appreciated :)

Similar predicament....

Wondering whether any Worcestershire or Cumbria traineeships will become available!

UCL will probably open it up for applications at the start of May. They're due to close it on 27th (as listed on their site), and it's usually up there for a month...

Hi all,

Does anyone have the current application pack that they could forward onto me? At the minute there is only the January 2015 application pack available on the course page.

Thanks

Hi all!

In the same position as 1495shenz. The recruitment pack is the one for the January cohort. I have messaged the recruitment team asking for an updated one.

If anyone has an up to date one could they pass it on to me too please.

Thanks :)

Hoping I'm not the only one unable to even get onto an application form at the minute. I don't actually think it's open yet? Maybe I'm being a bit too keen but they did say 5th may!

Does anyone have any idea when we are likely to hear from UCL about interviews for the PWP training? I know it's only recently closed so won't be for a while yet but just wondering if anyone has a rough idea from previous years applications? Thanks! :)

Hi All!

Just wanted to check if anyone else has had a request for their degree transcripts from admissions? I had a request from them yesterday requesting transcripts - which seemed strange when the recruitment pack said not to worry with uploading transcripts as it would not affect the application.

Cheers :)
