Travel in tracksuit or similar and take a spare one with you. Take a pair of shorts as well for the run. Pen/pencil for written tests (we were provided with them but always good to be prepared.) Take smart clothes, such as a suit, for the interview. Also something to sleep in and wash kit and towel (you'll get the chance to have a shower before your interview) I also took a spare pair of trainers as it was very wet when I was up there and a water bottle to have on standby following the run. Also an alarm clock (or mobile phone with an alarm) is also helpful. Some cash as you'll go to the NAAFI for an hour but you don't need much. And I think thats about it....
One more thing, note to females going to ADSC, make sure you take hair bobbles as your hair needs to be tied back. Also, the medical is supposed to be done in underwear for females but they do allow you to do it in shorts if you have them.
Just completed and passed selection at Lichfield. Was told to go there in smart dress i.e. shirt & trousers (no tie required). Was a range though from people like myself smartlt dressed, to jeans, to tracksuits. I agree though, first impressions to count, especially as you are being assesed from when you arrive.
The instructions I got issued with on Wednesday said to travel in tracksuit to allow for minimal disruption on arrival! I was quite suprised, as I expected to be travelling smartly dressed - but got to do whats asked I suppose!
Absolute crap, you shouldnt be paying it full stop!
If they have given you a date for next week then why havent you got the time to go and collect your joining instructions and rail warrant from the careers office?????
There is no excuse for having to pay for a train and then having to claim it back and i can tell you now that a careers office wont hold that money, they will end up having to submit a claim to try and recover it from their district
