Update 6th January 2019: Assessment Centre Stage

The 2018 Online IST outcome emails were released on 12/12/18. Please check your email inbox and junk folders for your result email. Please look out for emails from either our scheduling@ or info@ email addresses. If you have not yet received your result, please get in touch with us by email as soon as possible. Thanks to all who participated in the IST stage!

For candidates progressing to the Assessment Centre stage; Assessment Centres will be ongoing across the next few weeks. We would encourage you to read your invitation email carefully and follow all instructions. Please familiarise yourself with the Assessment Centre stage by reading the Candidate Briefing Document. Please come prepared to your Assessment Centre with your Education Eligibility Pre-Attendance Form completed in full. Make sure you bring with you original version and photocopies of evidence to prove your education eligibility. Also remember to bring valid photo ID. Furthermore, please leave plenty of time to travel to the Assessment Centre - traffic can be very heavy around Belfast and you need to be sure that you arrive in good time to the venue. 

In preparation for the Assessment Centre, you should make sure now that you have your original education certificates or appropriate evidence to cover you. If not, you should make the necessary arrangements to obtain from your exam board the original certificates or a 'Final Certifying Statement of Results' for any qualification you currently do not have evidence for, as without these present you cannot progress past the Assessment Centre Stage. Please note that it can take up to six weeks to receive your certificates from your exam board.

 Good luck to those progressing to the Assessment Centre stage!
