Re: AP supporting statement dilemma

I've found that writing in an essay style format helps me sound the most reflective and my material more engaging. I usually start with a short paragraph about why I want that particular job then make my next paragraph specific to that job area. So if the patient group is forensics I talk about fore...

Anyone else heard from Queen's? My friend got a reserve list letter but I have nothing - good news or bad? I assume all the interviews went out in one batch so not a good sign :(

Lancaster Bangor Teesside Edinburgh Well done to those who have been successful at Lancaster this afternoon - the tests were so difficult!

Re: course shortlisting dates 2017

Has anyone spoken to Queen's? They said 4-5 weeks after the deadline and it's been over 5 weeks now. I'm feeling nervous!

I notice someone has put up a 'no interview' from Edinburgh. My friend and I haven't heard a thing yet. Has anyone else heard from Edinburgh?

Re: Heard anything from Edinburgh

All of the courses say that you they will not discriminate on selecting you based on whether you have a car but that it is hugely advised for purposes of travel to and from placement and during your working day. Public transport around Scotland is pretty bad - you often have to go to a central locat...

Exeter is one of several courses that have a person specification about three pages long with things like 'able to concentrate for sustained periods of time' and 'can sit in constrained positions' as part of their essential criteri...

I feel like I have learnt a lot about learning disabilities and autism, and even how a service operates butttttt the job is driving me absolutely crazy. I...

Re: Support Worker Sleepover Payments

Thanks for the responses. This really is a contentious issue! I spoke to my line manager yesterday and she said they don't have to pay more than the £32 because it averages out that the 36 hrs (contract) + 9 hrs (sleepover) is more than minimum wage per hour. Not sure how legally valid that is if th...
