Hi all.

Wondering if anyone is CAT A & on the CTC train.

Still awaiting.

Wondered how everyone else was getting on for those awaiting CTC?

Average time for a CTC check alone is about 8-9 weeks minimum apparently

So annoying isn't it. All these people with vetting and we have the CTC on top. So so long.

I think my vetting may be done. All references etc returned. Just waiting on this.

I have read that is 63 working days they have to do it. Which is obviously about 3 months. So so long. Just checking everyday waiting for the complete. But I think even then that doesn't mean you've passed it. You then have to wait for an email with the answer I believe. But that's not 100% just what I'm getting from bits I have read!!

If a ctc check is involved no way will you be in the 5 6 week list. Wishful thinking :slin:

I've seen people pass within 8 weeks with a CTC!

Like stated above, 63 working days (3 months) is the supposed times.. Wait patiently it will be done when it's done 👍🏻
