Applications and timings

How and when to apply, and how long it takes.

All applications for the GMTS are currently made online via our website. Before you start your application, please use our Match me tool to make sure the scheme is right for you and check that you meet all the entry requirements.

As soon as you register with our online system, you’ll receive an email containing details of how to log in and keep up to date with your application. Each time you’re invited to the next stage of the process, you’ll receive your invitation via email and/or text.  Please make sure you opt into our SMS alert service when you start your online application.

We’ll also post regular updates about the scheme on both our Facebook page and Twitter page.

Please give us the exact dates of your annual leave/holiday as soon as possible.

We will forward these to the GMTS Onboarding Team and to the Local Leadership Academies (LLA) so these can be considered when planning your placement and initial orientation.

When applying for the GMTS, it’s important to consider your commitment to the educational components as it’s not possible to change these dates or the induction event dates, and both of these are mandatory to attend.

Please avoid booking any annual leave until the education dates have been released as we are unable to move these dates and attendance is mandatory.
