Panel interviews will take place on 4 and 5 December. We ask applicants to ensure they're available to attend the panel interviews on 4 and 5 December, should you be invited to attend. This will give you an opportunity to meet the team, to pitch your idea to an expert panel and attend an interview with one of our panelists. 

Following this assessment day, the panel will then make a decision about LORCA's second cohort. Successful applicants will be informed by 11 December and cohort 2 members will be introduced to partners and friends at a kick-off event.  

Our six-month cohort two programme will begin on Tuesday 8 January 2019.
