Ah sure look at the end of the day we would have just as much experience as yourself. I cant see age making a huge difference in this sure they would have known your age before the interviews so why ask you for an interview if they think youre too old? Best of luck anyway.

I was only joking, seeing as Waestrel thought 32 was perhaps too old for an apprenticeship, I'm older. I'd agree about it not having much relevance, they're looking for competent people, regardless of age.

Exactly they know what they want so there's no age restrictions!

I'm 28. Was told at the start of the interview that a lot of the questions were aimed at people just out of school so they'd skip them. They just told me there was a medical after this round. You'd want to make sure you're not colour blind, I'd a mate who wanted to be a pilot his whole life only to be told he was colour blind when he went for the job

so seems to be a nice spread of ages. Best of luck to us all, I'm sure they'll be in contact soon in any case.

I'd written it off at this stage. Maybe not seeing as no one seems to heard back. Fingers crossed.

I was in for mechanic and I'm 34 , do I win?

The conventional wisdom of boards would suggests huge sums of money, buts thats not all, the job has perks too numerous to list, sufficient to say you will be drinking a lot of tea and chatting away to your colleagues for at least 80% of the day.
