Software called Hirevue has been around for years and is used in more or less every grad scheme interview process (non-aviation), wouldn't be surprised if its been used for this too

Congrats to those with invites! Did you all put FTE Jerez down as preferred? Trying to find a common pattern if there is one i.e. theyíre inviting Jerez first etc

I put no preference down, I strongly suspect that they will be seperate days.

I had the same thought... I would assume each of the two flight schools have their own individual days with BA at Waterside.

I put Skyborne and am yet to hear either way... if that offers any reassurance!

I was also informed that there would be aptitude tests before the assessment days. I think there will be aptitude tests considering that is what Skyborne and BA have both said. I imagine out of the 20,000/30000 applications, BA have brought it down to 2000/3000 through the early assessments. I imagine that through the video interview and CV/written questions, they will deduct it, to around 500 - 700 and then invite 200/300 for assessment days to fill 70 places. Like many others, I have completed a video interview last week and waiting to hear back now. I imagine, invites will be sent all of this week and next. I highly doubt people have been invited for waterside assessment days yet considering BA has said they will give out offers in mid-December.

Nothing heard from me, Skyborne was my preference, did the video assessment on Friday. Imagine there are several hundred to process, the deadline was only yesterday. That said, sharing in your nervousness!

Thanks for the info Nino.. I think my timings are the same as yours but I put down Skyborne as my preference. Still biting my nails waiting to hear something!

Did they give you any joining instructions? What to expect, certificates to bring etc?

Did you get invited for FTEJerez or Skyborne? Im curious because no one on the forum has said they have been invited for skyborne so idk if they still need to do those.

I did my interview on the 29th and haven't seen anything yet. Assume they were already reviewing entries before the deadline, hence the quick invites to those who submitted early.

Is there anyone who knows someone who has been rejected from going to the assesment day at waterside? Also another question for people that have been accepted, was there an amount of spaces open for those 2 days shown of was there no limit shown, and so yeah how many?
