Interview Expenses

If attending national interviews in Scotland, any accommodation and travel required should be arranged and claimed back through your own health board, via their local processes.  If anyone requires confirmation of attendance for their board, please contact the Scottish Foundation School Team who will be able to provide this. Thank you for your continued support.
