Got a reply from HR today about the Test Materials and they've fixed the links that were in the emails so the test document & practice are available.

So I'll be cheeky tomorrow and take it in to work, print everything off and get it bound

Do you think there is a profile selection even before stage 1 ? I applied on the 14th of july but still haven't heard anything... I'm getting worried.
It seems to be really random.

Initial SHL tests

Hi guys,

Made an application around a month ago and today got an email inviting me to take the initial online tests.

Just wondered if anyone had any info about these/ is there any need to prepare?

Cheers.

I'm the same still getting worried after applying on the 9th July and hearing nothing plus no email reply from HR. It can't be selection before stage one as long as you meet the criteria!

Well, at least it builds up our patience and motivation...
But its good to see we are not the only one in the same situation.
Hope it will be for tomorrow...

Well, MattWT and lkrd1 say to have applied the 9th of july, HeaVn the 14 of july, I at the end of july and none of us have received any other news but the automated respone (I take it), and yet old chrisbeckett2004 applied on the 7th of august, and has already got the invite...

One could perhaps think, that due to NATS policy in which they only accept a limited percentage of foreigners per course, they regulate the number of invites sent out to none citizens. Hence, the delay. But I get the impression that not all of you are outsiders. So I don't have a clue.

Odd.

HeaVn - I'm fairly confident that no part of selecting Air Traffic Control candidates will be "random"...

Hi all, well i applied on the 22nd July, and just this morning (30th August), i got a reply inviting me to take the online selection test. Not sure of what process they go through for getting back to people, but i had lost hope already.

chrisbeckett2004: don't take it the wrong way, by old I wasn't referring to you as a person of advanced age. But in the other form this word has; used to express familiarity towards you since we all have once thing in common. Just a way to address the community on this forum.

Hi, i am applying to the NATS ATC program and have received an email to book my assessment for stage 1 of recruitment. Anyone else having difficulties with booking their assessment location/date on the link provided on the email? I cant complete it as there is no confirmation buttons or anything after selecting the location id like :S It could just be my computer if not. Cheers.

I received an email yesterday asking me to take the online assessment, i did that and within about 1 hour i got a reply asking me to go to fareham within the next few weeks to sit an assessment, along with that they sent links to information that they expect you to read and learn for that assessment, there is a 22 page guide telling you all about NATs, ATC, and aircraft, which apparantly will be on the assessment, along with a spatial reasoning question and some other bits and bobs
