Why do you want the job?
What hours do you want?
Would you work nights?
Basic care questions.
This is about 4 hours long, but most of the time you're waiting for others to be interviewed.
If you're successful, you then go to a week of classroom training 9-5, Mon-Fri. It is non paid, but in depth and useful. In your training you get a small test to pass.
Then you are on the wards for 3-5 placements. A nurse signs you off as able and then you can book shifts with bank or apply for a role on a ward.
