Just had email today for me to complete my tasks.
Everything seemed to fill in ok until I got to the references part where it wouldn't submit? Has anyone else had any problems with this part?

Also I had my picture taken on the assessment day but it's asking me to supply a passport size photo. Just wondering what the other guys have done before I get another mug shot taken!

There are more tasks to come, I had no issues with filling the references but it did say I hadn't completed them all for a while even though I had. Cant remember how i fixed it though. You will get an email at some point with more tasks like clothing sizes and driving licence check.
That email and the first tasks both asked for a photo. I just sent them another I have feeling the one at the assessment may have been used to help the assessors remember who we where.

Thanks mate, really helpful tips there.

I've had a nosey of this forum and found some really useful stuff!

Fingers crossed everything goes all well, and I hope they let me have a September start as I'm being made redundant and cant leave until then!

Best thing being if all goes well is a van!

Anyone know how soon they contact your employer once you've given them your references ?

There's a 1940's film about belts, that shows them testing a belt to 600lbs, or over 250kg.

It might still be a requirement to wear a bowler while dressing your belt wink

Your references are usually contacted within a couple of days of submitting them so be prepared if it's going to upset your employer.

Weeks

1-2 Yarnfield Park Stone
3 local training facility
4 local Buddying
5-6 local training facility
7 local Buddying
8 local training facility
9-12 local Buddying with you going solo Wednesday of week 12

I start 22nd May they contacted my employer on Thursday of this week so roughly 2 weeks before for me but I think like other things it most likely varies as others have said they can do it within a couple of days of you submitting them. They have had mine for around 2 or 3 weeks before they requested them.

All sorted. My laptop didn't allow me to fill in the addresses of my references etc. Managed to sort it on the iPad. All the best to those who are starting in the next couple of weeks. Any feedback you can post on here would be much appreciated. I've got around 10 weeks to wait until I start. Looking forward to it.
