Applications for most programmes open in the autumn. To apply, you need to complete an online profile. You can only apply to one programme in any six month period but if you are unsuccessful you can apply to other roles.
If you are suitable for the role, you’ll be invited to the Discovery Portal. This is an interactive experience and takes about an hour, but there’s no time limit. You’ll receive feedback within a few days.
If you’re successful at the Discovery Portal stage, you’ll be invited to one of the assessment centres where you’ll take part in a variety of activities designed to help find out what your strengths are.
For some of the programmes, the final stage will be one or two technical interviews with managers from the specialist area you have applied to work in. You will be given you lots of advice before your interviews.
If you’re successful in all the stages they will offer you a place on the programme and tell you your start date.
Three months before your start date, you will be asked to provide evidence of your academic results and two references. Then the details of your training will be shared with you.
