    Hi All,

    We're expecting to become very busy over the next couple of months with training contract applications/interviews fully underway.

    With that in mind, we're re-introducing our competition for free TCLA Premium memberships. Every week (starting this Friday), me, @Alice G or @Daniel Boden will award one person a free month of TCLA Premium based on their contributions to the forum. These can be awarded for anything from posting activity to useful contributions and supporting other members.

    Happy posting!
