Accelerated Apprenticeship selection

Hi All, just wondering if anyone knows when the final selection is made for the accelerated apprenticeships. Joining as AA ET ME with a provisional start date of 4th November and PRNC date 24th September.

My understanding is it hasn't been announced....still.

The frustration is fully appreciated, we're hoping first week of Sept but watch this space.

My AFCO applied for my Raleigh date for AA ME last week. Do you think it'll be processed in time for me to have a chance of joining this November, Ninja?
 
Probably no. I was offered a provisional entry date for November back around Easter. I believe all of the AA ET ME applicants that were first selected are now going through a second stage selection process in which applicants could be deselected from the AA route and offered standard entry.

Didn't get in this time, as expected. Not sure what I'll do - one of my options was go ET ME and hope for fast track.

The email didn't say when the next ET ME intake is. Is it quite regular, Ninja?

Sorry to hear you weren't selected, I think your ET(ME) entry date will either be the same or pretty soon after the provisional AA entry date.

I was fast-tracked when I joined (I actually think it's a better way of selection because the "interview" lasts throughout phase one & two training, so they're fairly sure whether or not you're a fairly safe bet).

You can still get the same qualifications and get to Petty Officer fairly fast, I did it in two years to Leading Hand and six years from the day I joined as an MEM - ET(ME) in old money. And some were faster than me.

I asked the PO at the office and he said he'll find out and tell me next week. I never had a provisional date, so I won't be waiting till next November, will I?

If you weren't in the mix for this entry, then you'll be in the next "lucky dip" unless you opt to join as aan standard technician. Your Careers Adviser should be able to advise the next AA intake, I don't have the dates to hand unfortunately.

Should have stated it, I meant if you knew next intake for ET(ME). Don't know how I forgot to say that. Sorry!

I was told next AA ME intake was November 2019 - too long for me to wait.

Thanks for all your help, anyway.

The AA selection board has today released the results for the next entry. If you have not heard yet, call your AFCO.


I applied last year and had some issues with my weight, I managed to shift it (3.5 stone) and was declared medically fit and passed my PJFT fairly shortly after. My AFCO applied for my start date the same day and I’m still waiting for it. I’ve been asking him for weeks now if there’s been any update as he bidded for my place at Raleigh early July. Since then I had my ‘Technical interview’ Spoke to my recruiter last Tuesday and asked him what was going on and he’s said that usually if the start date is November then you would have expected to have a provisional date already and booked on PRNC but give it two weeks and call him back and he will chase it up. Obviously I’m now getting impatient because my future is currently in limbo. Is it safe to assume that I’ve probably missed the November 4th entry ?

Sorry for the long winded message but my AFCO is giving me very little useful advice.

My AFCO told me I wasn't selected for November on 1st September, so I think you must have not been selected as well. Unless your AFCO have somehow not been told?
