Is this change of policy in place yet? On the NATS website it still states that you can only apply once but I guess if it's a recent change they may not have updated the website yet.
NATS posted this on their careers Facebook page on 14th November:

"You may be aware weíve been reviewing the application process for Trainee Controllers. It's part of an ongoing review and as such, is subject to change but if you've not been successful in your past application, or decided that the time wasnít right and you withdrew, you can now re-apply after 12 months 🎉 Donít worry if you forget, we will send you an email to let you know when you are able to apply. If you choose not to, we have lots of other opportunities all around the business, so keep an eye out!"

Good write up ATCOnoob1 but just a little amendment to the post. I was there the other week and I was directed to a vending machine that has a good selection of sandwiches... it’s in the same area as the chocolate vending machine and drinks.

Ahh nice one mate. I had the email about dates almost straight after too. Donít forget to check your spam folder just in case itís hidden in there because I know a couple of my messages from them ended up in there.

Iím now booked on for Stage 3 on 29th Jan as I canít make any in December and the 29th was the only Date they had available.

Hi, Congratulations on passing. I've also passed stage 3. Attended on 1st November and found out on 6th.

How should we get in touch? I'm unable to send pm here. Let me know.

Congratulations, have you had any further information since submitting your reference forms etc? All Iíve had so far is a medical appointment booked. I had a March start date quoted but nothing in stone yet. I canít pm on here either.

Hi all, congratulations everyone who recently passed their stages 2 and 3.

I was hoping that someone here could tell me how long does a medical assessment day in Swanwick take? I am booked for 14th of December, but the timeframe (apart from starting time) is not mentioned in the email. It would help me to know what time I will finish so I can plan my journey and other things too.

I know I should just ask them directly, but I thought I would ask here first anyway

Thanks!

Not sure whether they are awaiting on some new stage 3 dates. I had my email about passing stage 2 on Friday, and I am still waiting for my stage 3 invitation/dates.

I've got my medical booked for mid December. That's it so far.
When's your medical?
They have also told me March start date. Nothing confirmed yet.
Lets hope its soon.

My medical is in London and the email states that it takes at least 4 hours. Its probably same in Swanwick.
Good Luck

Medical is Jan 11th.

Not heard anything since I sent in my forms, hopefully hear some kind of confirmation that everything is moving forward at some point.

Hello! I've recently been added onto the January 2018 course and am wondering if there are any others out there! In particular if any groups are set up for that course too?

Good luck to all going through the process

When did you sit stage 3 and when did you hear back?

Congratulations for getting a place
