What to expect after you apply

We aim to provide feedback on your application within four weeks and each application is reviewed by a panel at the Education and Training Foundation (ETF).

Once the application window has closed, all remaining applications will be reviewed during September 2022. Notification of the outcome will be sent to applicants by the end of September. The portfolio will be issued on 03 October 2022 and an introductory webinar will take place shortly after. The process lasts 12 months, so completion will be the end of October 2023.
