What to expect after you apply

We aim to provide feedback on your application within eight 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 2024. Notification of the outcome will be sent to applicants by the end of September. The portfolio will be issued in October 2024 and an introductory webinar will take place shortly after. The process lasts 14 months, so completion will be the end of December 2025.
