New to this site. Just waiting to hear about the September sift for Engineer Apprentice. Hoping I will get an interview as I'm 100% for this. Anyone else in the same position?
Cheers

Just learn the names of ships and the roles they play and where they are, also crew size. You will be shown a few mechanical pics and you have to talk as much as possible about what you see. That's all the revision you can do the rest is about you and your life and experiences.

The course has been enjoyable for the us, just into our third week, , it's been good fun on base with all the lads on the course.
For myself I had an interview mid April and heard back at the end of June. They are suppose to take on 16 Apprentices at a time but that number hasn't been met since the apprentiship scheme started (last minute pull outs, security clearance issues, injections aren't up to date ect ect)
On our course (started 26th September) there's 12 guys.
Just before you head down to SULTAN you find out how many should be on the course but that can change for example we were suppose to have 13 but only 12 showed up.

Thanks for the reply.
We were told 18 are being recruited but don't know how many are being interviewed.
It's my son who is hoping to get in ...... he had worked so hard for this and really is committed. Would be a shame if he didn't get through... worrying times...
could be a long wait to find out then...
-are you taking exams all the way throughout or is it coursework?
Thanks again

Wishing him all the best! Hopefully he'll be fine, but yeah can be a long time some lads on this course applied 12/14 months ago and this then getting in! But I wish him well!
You get tested on Fridayss of the stuff you have learnt in that week.

How would trainees know that? Obviously all those on the course applied and got through, that's 100% of that intake. It's like the crap teacher at school on the bus trip saying right hands up who's not here!!!!!!

According to some people here
200 applied
96 passed the sift
40 people interview
16 gives spaces
When it came down to it there's 12 people actually started the course

How do they know that or is that info from the instructors? What happened to the 56 that passed the sift but didn't get an interview? Where is the RT stage stats?

All that for the selection interview?

I would have thought that's the basics for a job interview, that you know something about the company you want to work for and have some knowledge of the job you are going for...

I had my interview back in February and they don't ask anything to do with ships. I got asked if I could name a couple of bases so I said Raleigh Sultan Collingwood and he said that's fine. He then asked me about the core values and that's it really.
