Current Competition

2015-16 Competition 

We closed for applications at 10am on the 2nd of April 2015. The process for seeking assessments is now complete. The Selection Panel are extremely grateful for the assistance they get from all assessors. Please click here for this year’s application form and here for the guidance that was issued. This form should only be used as a guidance as there will be some changes to the form in the 2016-17 competition and it will not be possible to submit an application on this form.

Applicants invited to interview were informed in September and interviews will take place in London and Manchester during October.  The Selection Panel’s recommendations will be passed to the Lord Chancellor in late November. It is expected that the appointments arising from this competition will be announced in early 2016.
