Achievers UK

I’ve put a link to this website on the home page. Anyone considering careers in Law or Finance should take a look – even if it’s just see what people from your school ended up doing!

AchieversUK.com aims to raise the aspirations of young people by highlighting the success of former pupils of their school.

The initiative focuses not only on high flyers, but also on individuals who may not be household names but who carry out a vital role in society. This helps pupils realise there is more to individual success than simply becoming rich and famous.

As youngsters are introduced to individuals in whose footsteps they are following, they gain confidence and realise they too can go on to be successful in a variety of ways.

Nursing Applications

Some information from CATCH.    The Guide, the Application Form and Notes on Completing the Application Form can now be downloaded from their website http://www.nes.scot.nhs.uk/nursing/recruitment/catch/ .   Applicants will need to be able to refer to both the Guide and the Notes throughout the application process, including when they are called for an interview.  If we or clients download the Application Form it is essential that the Guide and Notes are downloaded as well. 

CATCH will continue to send out the full application pack to anyone who can’t or prefers not to download it.  Contact CATCH at PO Box 21, Edinburgh EH2 2YS

There is no closing date for applications but since there are generally more applicants than places available (particularly in Midwifery and Child Health) CATCH advises that applicants submit their forms as early as possible.
