Things to know...

  • Applicants can make up to three choices with no restrictions as to route or age group. So they might make three HEI choices or they might choose a mixture of courses run by HE course providers, SCITTs or School Direct School Alliances, such as our SAST courses.
  • The three choices will be made and considered at the same time. Schools and providers will not have visibility of the other choices an applicant has made.
  • Schools and providers will have 40 working days from receipt of an application to make a decision (working days exclude weekends, bank holidays and Christmas/Easter closure). 
  • The Mid Somerset Consortium is committed to ensuring equality, diversity and inclusion among our workforce, training cohort and partners, and eliminating unlawful discrimination. If you think you may require adjustments for an interview or have concerns, please contact us to discuss.
