Hi John,
I'm in exactly the same position and haven't heard anything since September, unfortunately. Just waiting to hear and keeping fingers crossed.

Hi John,

I am also in the same position. Last email in September and I was initially offered the position in March 2020.

The only person I have heard of returning is somebody who was cut after they had commenced training, they have just been invited back to start in January.

Fingers crossed we all here something soon. I am hoping this side of Christmas but who knows.

I'm still waiting to apply for ATC, I got an amazing opportunity in airside operations at my local airport now so I'm going to wait a few years to get experience and let the inevitable backlog of applicants calm (and to save up to cover the year of low-ish pay )

Any rumours as to when NATS may reopen applications for trainees?

The ones who had just started training in early 2020 but were then cancelled have now restarted (or at least some of them have). Then I presume there are still a few more people who were accepted but never got the chance to start a course, but after that the pool of applicants will be empty.

I'm not sure how often they start new courses, but they could need people fairly soon? Next autumn/winter maybe?

TATCO Training Start

Hi all,

Just thought I’d chip in with some info if anyone is still following this thread.

I passed selection and was “offered” a place back in March 2020.

I’ve now been given a start date of 6th June based at Whiteley (Course 311), and have received contracts etc.

If anyone else is in the same boat, it would be good to hear from you.


*I’m also aware of a Global course that starts on 3rd April*

Thanks for the update

If you were originally offered a place in March 2020, you are probably one of the last of the "old" cadets to be recalled. Hopefully this means they will open up recruitment again soon!
