I just thought that the rfa process would be quicker than the navy's as the rfa doesn't have additional fitness tests and stuff but guess not.
There were two 16 year old boys in my class of 8 (each turned 17 during the course) so your age is not an issue. Good luckHi guys I'm 16 years old and I wanted to know if my chances of getting in as a chef apprentice are better than someone who is older than me?
As you said about looking for a job I am looking for a job at a nearby takeaway, that will be all the experience I have other than cooking at home.@7976887 - As others have said, settle yourself down for a lengthy recruiting process.
Whilst you have a lot of time on your hands (and you'll probably find some use for even a min wage income?) is there anything to prevent you from chasing up every job opportunity within the catering/hospitality sector?
Consider - potwash at an upmarket hotel, waiting at a busy greasy spoon, MacD/KFC/BK etc. Those all provide opportunities for at least a taste of what a career in cookery entails. Besides providing you with a few readies and answers to these inevitable RFA Interview questions:
"What have you been doing since you left school? & Have you any experience relevant to the role of an RFA chef?"
PS To put your 11 days waiting in perspective - A relative has no firm news (Last Quoted "It might be 'early 2021) so it looks like they will have clocked up between 18/24 months between first registration for an RFA Application (in another role) and their eventual Entry Date.
