So, you’ve accepted a conditional offer, what happens now? Here are three important things you need to know:
- You’ve been offered a place… as long as you meet some conditions. You may be waiting for the results of your degree, or have been asked to meet some non-academic requirements including a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, or declaration of criminal convictions. You’ll be told what these conditions are.
- If the training provider has asked you provide proof of your qualifications or experience, make sure you do so as soon as possible, to avoid any delays when the training programme starts. It’s best to keep copies of everything you send to the training provider, and when you sent it, as a record in case anything goes missing.
- If you’re not sure what you need to do to meet your conditions, or if you’re not clear what they mean, contact the training provider as soon as possible to get an answer. If you’ve accepted a conditional offer and you don’t meet the conditions, you won’t get the place.
