    Hi all

    I was just wondering if anyone had been put on a reserve list for a GTP and been successful?
    I am disheartened to not get on the course again but have been told that I am on the short reserve list so have to wait and see.
    I just wanted to see what my chances of success were and if anyone had had any luck on this front?

  3. Hi Nat,

    I was placed on the GTP reserve list last year (around February time) and kept holding out for a place to start that September but unfortunately i never heard anything...a long and arduous waiting game :(
    I re-applied this year and i got on so ill be starting this September. I'm aware of some people though that were contacted the week before the Autumn term started so there's still hope! :) Keep positive!
     
  4. Hi Nat. Hopefully it is not bad news for you. I was initially on a reserve list after interviewing in early January. I have now been offered a place by that provider and I have accepted. I think a lot of places are clarifying funding etc.. Many providers were fearing the worst and planning for a reduction in numbers so there are likely a lot of reserve places until everything is clear for them.

    Between being told I was a reserve and then gaining a place it was less than a month so hopefully you will hear back soon.

    Best of luck.

    Thank you for your wishes of luck, Hopefully it will be OK and I will still be offered a place.
    It is horrible having to wait around al the time though. Its horrible but fingers crossed!
     
  6. Hi Nat, I'm also on a reserve list and I'm hoping I'll get a place, but I'm keeping my options open and I'm starting to look for TA posts, mentoring, etc anything that will gain me more experience before I apply again for next year.
    I've heard of a few people who have been offered a place after being put on the reserve list, so there is a chance still.
    Good luck with yours, hopefully you'll hear some good news sometime soon.

  7. Hi,



    I was initially unsuccessful in my GTP interview and was placed on the reserve list, I received the letter on the Friday telling me so, and a phone call on the Monday telling me they had a place to offer to me!



    So it does happen! Good luck!

    It's just a fingers crossed time! Hoping that I will get the call. I have 5 years experience as a cover supervisor and have been teaching classes over the last year and a half, so I am ready for it!!!

    thanks
