Stage 3: Meet with the Interview Panel

The information in the Application Form is to give the Interview Panel a good idea of you and your capabilities, as well as for you to reflect more deeply on your reasons for applying. You will be asked to share with the Panel your motivations and clear Placement preferences, where your skills could be offered, as well as consider other Placements.Remember the number of Placements is limited and unfortunately, we cannot absolutely promise you your choice of Placement as the Panel must make its judgments on your merits and whether you will benefit the Placement. The Panel will include a key person from one of the placements, and the panel will consult with other key people at the Placement to get their agreement, as this is a partnership program.
