Haha cheers mate! Yeah, here's hoping there will be some movement on that soon then eh? Surely must be as I'd have thought they'd want folk in from March onwards. I don't have any holidays booked, but I'd need one day off in the second week of June for an exam, so I'll need to look into that with them.

Aw awesome mate! Congrats! Yeah exact same situation. The longer it went on the more I doubted my memory of how I thought I'd done, so was relieved more than anything this afternoon. Could not have lasted till next Monday or Tuesday haha.

Hi, I was trying to do the same but there seems to be quite a few to choose from so I didnt bother.
I asked around but nobody knows, Id just hang fire and wait, the start dates they give you are expecting to include the disclosure application so it wont speed anything up anyway.
What area has your partner applied for if you dont mind me asking?

Alright,

Its a basic disclosure that you need, however I wouldnít apply for it yet as about 6 weeks before your start date they send you out a contract to sign (via email), they then send you a list of tasks to complete before you start. One of those tasks is to apply for your basic disclosure - they ask you to send the date you applied for it along with the reference number you get and then you supply a copy of the certificate once you receive it.

Hope that helps

It all seems very last minute but once youíve got your start date things seem to move up a gear.

6 weeks before your start date, youíll receive your contract and Terms of Employment via email. You sign these online and send them back.

Not too long after that you will receive a list of tasks to do, this includes getting your Disclosure Scotland, supplying a copy of ID and proof of address, sending a passport style photo via email for your ID card, sending copies of any education certificates, filling in some personal details and supplying the names of your two references (I think thatís everything) you get a week to complete all of this. Once this is done and you receive you Disclosure Scotland you send them a copy.

A few days after sending them everything you will get an email confirming all your pre-employment checks are complete and to wait to hear from them in regards to travelling to Yarnfield.

You will hear NOTHING until about a week before you are scheduled to start, it seems like they have forgotten about you but they havenít. A week before you start you will get a kind of induction email telling you about traveling to Yarnfield and what the programme is while youíre there. If you are travelling by train they will send you train tickets to your home address, if travelling by hire car they will contact you to arrange.

A week later youíll be on your way to Yarnfield to start.
