Yeah I think they can only have so many from each area training at one time for the buddying part. March was full I was told and next available slot for me was June. Not sure if that would be different for others assigned different areas though! Not too bad as lets me get my uni stuff out of the way first.
Wow, June is a long wait. Hopefully it is set areas that are like that as my current contract runs out in March. Might hear soon as I think you were the assessment day before me. Fingers crossed.
Least you are booked up for training now.
