Hi - new to the forum and first post! I have submitted by Care Inspectorate form and have everything ready to go in terms of policies, business plan, charging model etc

However I am in a really sticky situation as I mis-judged how long this would take and have been out of work for some time. I cannot afford any more than another 4 weeks before taking on kids (I have a number of leads for June).

Can anyone help with advising me how long the process takes? If it is more than 4 weeks I will need to look for employment elsewhere and process the application in the background.
