Once you’ve found a role that matches your interests, skills, and the amount of time you want to commit, it’s time to submit your application! In the application, you will be asked to provide some information about; yourself, the role(s) you are interested in, what stage of your education/training you’re currently at, and the details of at least one person (up to 2 people) who can provide a reference.

You will also be asked to answer 3 questions, which will be used to determine whether your application reaches the next stage of selection.

These 3 questions can all be completed in a range of formats. You can type straight into the application form, record your answers by video/voice note, create a poster or write a song/poem (or something else!) to answer the questions.
