I think you're probably right, maybe one small wave now to keep us going, and a large one when this package expires.

I appreciate that this is a difficult time for everyone in the industry and there is a lot of worry and anxiety about jobs, but it seems like there is a lot of speculation and conjecture taking place. Some of it may well turn out to be correct, but I think it would be more useful if comments were based on solid information as opposed to feeling, as it just serves to spread anxiety in what is already a difficult time.

Hi, Justbeingnosey, Im just being nosey here, too, but looking at your posting history it seems your son was a trainee assistant at Swanwick 10 years ago.

Did he sort you out with a career change in your fifties? Or are you just LARPing?

About 60% of the company are furloughed at the moment. So this is an unnecessary fallacy.

Hi all, I really want to become an ATC. To get myself prepared for this, I'm planning to form a study group. Drop me a message if you are interested to join. Let me know if you want to create an whatsapp group or telegram group.
cheers

Im intrested but wouldn't be better for NATS to tell us about them re opening its recruitment before we start studing for anything.

It's a nice idea to do a study group, but the application process doesn't reward prior knowledge - it's really based on aptitude and personality. You could have read every book on air traffic control and still fail the process, while someone with no prior knowledge at all could pass.

Also bear in mind that things are very uncertain in the industry at the moment - I'm currently awaiting a start date for training (it was supposed to be in April) - nobody knows if/when it's going to go ahead, given the current situation.

liamdavis What are you going to study? Tried to PM you but your inbox is full, you need to delete all messages (sent messages too) as we are allowed only one message at the beginning (if nothing has changed).

"liamdavis has exceeded their stored private messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space."

I was supposed to have a Stage 3 Assessment back in March but haven't had any communication with them since they said it was cancelled.
