Hi all, my partner and I were accepted into stage 1 in February and nothing has happened since. We are now almost in June. Our training has been arranged and cancelled twice already and then we were told "maybe July". We gave our reference contact details back in March and these still haven't been done. We were given our workbook and have been sending our SW things and not getting any feedback. When our SW cancelled our training again a couple of weeks ago, I expressed my frustrations and asked if our October panel date was unlikely now. And asked when the references were going to be done etc (to give her a nudge). All she said was "October is still fine. It's not your fault. I will get you sorted one way or another" and we've heard nothing since.
She seems incredibly laid back and the experience is really draining.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this? We just keep getting told there's either no room for us in the training or that people have cancelled and now there's not enough people.
My partner hasn't finished his workbook yet because he doesn't have the incentive to rush because everything else is going so slow. Again, I've asked her when she needs his workbook back by (because it would be good for him to have a deadline to meet) and again, no answer.
I do not know what to do any more. The whole experience is really off putting and I am dreading what lies ahead.
Feeling very deflated! :-(
