Selection Date for AA Roles?

JWC

Hello,

I got my PRNC and Entry date a couple of months ago, however, after receiving them I was told that whilst I have been given those it doesn't mean I will be starting then.
After the 'specialist Interview,' then your portfolio will be made and a board will select a certain number of applicants from these portfolios.
In my specialist interview, I was told that 'he can't see me having any problems with my entry test score and qualifications'.- and having applied for WE (I know this is by no means a guarantee)
Does anybody have any information on when the AA applicants will be selected?

I started the process for this in April/June 2017! Lots of waiting! I know it will be worth it though.

@Ninja_Stoker You've been helpful with all my questions so far

To be honest it's a bit "woolly" at best.

Not got exact dates, but my understanding is for the November 2019 entry, the decision on who makes the cut will be made early September.

If I can find out more, I'll post an update.

My given ‘start’ date is November 18th but I’m still waiting to hear if I’ve made selection! So I don’t know whether I’ll be starting or not!
I guess that’s because it’s a fairly new Rile/System?

In the specialist interview he said that WE wasn’t as competitive for places as ME or AE.

Thanks anyway

Contentious and controversial though it is, I think everyone should start as a bog standard ET (AE/ME/WE) then the top 10% achievers on phase two should then go for a selection board if they meet the academic threshhold.

I did just that 37 years ago only it was just called Specially Selected, rather than Accelerated Apprentice. We then undertook a 4 month course ashore & afloat to get our task books cracked, followed by a killicks board. If you passed the board, you were then promoted to Leading Rate as vacancies arose.

This method of selection is weird. Applicants must meet the academic requirement, then pass a technical interview to assess acquired mechanical knowledge/aptitude & leadership potential. Candidates then put into the pot for selection with a nominal entry date. Applicants then have to wait for a non-technical person to select the best achievers at interview a couple of months prior to entry. Those not selected are offered standard entry.

I must agree it does seem a bit strange. That being said I hope it works well for me (if I’m selected) I know my academic side will not let me down.
With this method of selection.
Do you know how the previous intakes for AA fared?
Were the results at the expected level?

Mmmmm do I sniff a disgruntled B13. You want the best you select them early and train them the way you want. I seem to remember jumping through most of the hoops you’ve described. If it wasn’t broken why did they try and fix it, only to re invent the wheel sometime later?

I doubt it, it applies to those joining today who are streamed and selected just before they join
  • Accelerated Apprentices must meet the educational criteria, same as Artificers were.
  • Accelerated Apprentices, upon passing all selection elements, are given a provisional entry date, same as Artificers were.
  • Accelerated Apprentices, two months prior to entry, can then be deselected and offered standard ET (ME/AE/WE) instead, based on an assessment in a non-technical appraisal report - not the same as Artificers were.
  • The point is simply that completion of phase one and two training is possibly a better time to assess the individual's technical and leadership aptitude, rather than a 45 minute interview prior to joining, to enable the person best suited is selected for rapid advancement.
