Hi everyone.
I'm really excited as we are going to panel on Monday smile We've been rushed through assessment as our LA have a couple of potential matches for us already.
I was just wondering, is there anything you wish you'd known before panel?

That they are on your side smile

They want you to be approved and are not looking for reasons not to approve you.
Also, for us, there was no debrief afterwards just a "well done, we will be in touch" and we were sent on our way!

There was a crash on the motorway closing all 3 lanes! We all made it in the end. For our placement panel we turned up an hour early and treated ourselves to a slap up breakfast in the canteen.
Seriously though - just be yourself. If you've got this far you'll be ok.
