The assessment sessions move around the country, and you may apply for any session. You are also welcome to attend and observe one of the assessment days. Tickets are on sale from the local host organiser shortly before each event.
Still Images: Assessment sessions are held twice each year. The target is that nobody should wait for more than a year. There may be additional catch-up sessions to clear any backlog of applications.
