Talking I'm in the class too!

Hi Guys, first post!

Received word yesterday that Dec 7th would be my official start date for the ATCO Ab-Initio course.

I can't really seem to find much activity about it apart from on here.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/Dec7ATCO/

I've created a FB group, with the hopes that other people will find it as well but in the meantime if you guys could join up so we can all discuss and organise things together that would be great!

I'm looking to see what sort of house share we can set up so if any of you have any ideas or are also looking let me know!

Thanks

Hey everyone ! First post here,

First of all, congratulations to all of you starting a course soon!

I've been reading this thread for the past couple of months, and just wanted to say a huge thanks cause it really helped me get through the stage 2.
I was just wondering, for the Stage 3, is it group exercise + one on one (well two actually) interview? Or just the latter?

Thanks for any reply!

Good luck to everyone !

Just quoting NATS website: 'If youíve passed the tests above, youíll be invited to book a competency-based interview. This is very important and itís essential that youíre able to provide evidence of your achievements, whether in a formal work capacity or in other areas of life. Trained assessors, such as Air Traffic Controllers, HR representatives and members of the Human Factors group will score your responses.'

But you will get more specific details with your Stage 3 invitation email

Good luck!

Dec 7th?

Hi guys,

Also a new poster here, and have heard that I will be starting my course on December 7th this year! Have noticed that a few others have already said hello, do any of you have any ideas about accommodation yet?
Really looking forward to starting and meeting you all!

I'm starting on the 7th December and so is somebody I work with up here conveniently, we're looking at getting a flat together somewhere but more than likely with a few other people because it'd be cheaper. I've seen a few 4 bedroomers on rightmove for around the 2-250 a week mark which between 4 isn't much.

So I had my stage 3 yesterday! It seemed like it went well, I don't have any regrets so couldn't have done anymore! Good luck to everyone else, here's hoping we hear back sooner rather than later!

I still havent been able to book myself for the stage 2 exams but I guess waiting a bit more is not going to kill me 😁. Good luck to everyone and congratulations to all of the ones that already have a starting date for their training.

Hi all. I got the fantastic news this morning that I've passed stage 3, and I'm also on the Ab Initio course starting 7th December. Good luck to everyone still in the process, and for those starting in December; see you on the 7th!

Hey guys, new here. First of all i'd like to thank all of you for your advices and suggestions which have been very useful

Nevertheless, i finally decided to post on this topic because of this little doubt: I was waiting for a suitable Stage 2 assesment date but after a couple of cancellations i knew about two days before the date that i couldn't attend the last weeks, i checked again my invitation link from NATS and something changed. Instead of the traditional "There are no time slots available for this event as the date is fully booked (...etc)" i get "This event is no longer available for registration. PLEASE KEEP HOLD OF YOUR INVITATION EMAIL AND CHECK BACK FOR NEW DATES. WHEN WE OPEN UP NEW DATES, YOU WILL BE SENT A REMINDER EMAIL."

What does this exactly means? Maybe it's vacancies for the current TATC training course are all covered? When i check back my NATS Careers Vacancies system portal that job opening is still there... And i can even apply again..

At least the "When we open up new dates you will be sent a reminder email" somehow reassures me...

By the way, best of luck to all of you attending Stage 2 and 3 assesment and also to ab initio course crew!

Thanks in advance, cheers!
