    Hi. My son is going through the joining process at the moment. It's proving long and bumpy! Could I please be added to the parent and partners forum.
    Thank you

    It took my son over 3 years from application, but he persevered and is now in RT on week 4.

    wow, what did he do during that time? I'm worried it will take a long time and he'll be sitting around not doing much. I don't think he'll be able too get a job because of the new rules that they have to stay in education until they're 18

    Well he had to have laser eye surgery; then had to wait a year. Then had to have checks to make sure they were stable over a period of time.
