The StepOut Programme receives applications once a year. April 15th is the last day of application for those wanting to leave in the autumn (August-September).
The application is to be supplemented with the recommendation of the applicant by two people. One should be a person who can say something about the applicant as a Christian, and the other a person who can recommend the applicant in more general terms.
When the application time has expired, the admissions committee, consisting of staff and lay people from Interact, will convene and decide which of the applicants they would like to invite for interviews. Everyone is not called for an interview. A first selection is made and some applicants will have their applications turned down at this stage.
