Application dashboard

How the dashboard looked at different stages of an application as of March 2020.

Each state shows a different generated application, with between 1 and 3 choices. Any given state could show up to 3 choices.

Awaiting references#

The candidate submits their application choices with a list of referees. Until 2 references have been received all applications remain in the Awaiting references state. The providers don’t see the application at this stage

Waiting to be sent#

The references have come back and have been added to the application. Candidates are allowed a cooling-off period of 5 days to modify their application before it’s sent to providers. They can’t modify the references.

Pending decision from provider#

Providers only see the application after the references have come back and have been added to the application and 5 days have elapsed for the candidate to review and modify the application. When both of these prerequisites are met the application moves to the Awaiting provider decision state.

Offer made (pending decision from candidate)#

The provider has made an offer to the candidate. The candidate has to accept or reject the offer, which sets the application status to ‘Pending conditions’. We assume that all offers have some conditions, even if there are no academic conditions.

Candidate enrolled#

Once the candidate has completed the enrolment process, the provider confirms their enrolment onto the training programme. Since this status would be used to claim bursaries/grants from DfE, the provider may delay enrolling the trainee until a few weeks after the start of the training, since trainees can still not show up on the first day or drop out within the first couple of weeks. This reduces the risk that DfE over-pays that provider for training they didn’t deliver and has to reconcile later on. The candidate’s HESA equality monitoring information is made available to the provider.

Candidate has withdrawn all their choices#

If the candidate withdraws an application in progress it moves to the Withdrawn (end) state
