Hey! Nice to know someone on the same course :) My two week induction is 10th May too at my establishment in the Midlands so they're booking me into accommodation for Islington. Will you be staying in accommodation or will you be commuting?

@kinzku5

Oh, have they said where they're putting you accommodation wise?

I live on the outskirts of London so Ill be getting the tube in every day. Think Coffee and Red Bull will be my new diet ready for those early starts!

Yeah they said I'll be staying at a Mercure hotel in Islington. I've googled it, I think it's the Bloomsbury Hotel but not 100%. Not sure if I'm being blonde here but am I right in thinking the course will be based at the hotel, like in a meeting room or something?! I've not had any more information about it just yet.

Haha for sure! Can't function without a coffee 😂

It’s actually at the Double tree Hilton in Islington, no idea why they say Mercure. I double checked this with SSCL.

Ahh I see, thanks. Do they book you at the hotel for the whole 8 weeks? I've read some posts that say they don't provide rooms for the weekend so we have to trek back and forth every week!
