Phase one need to sell: panel guidance

In the interests of transparency the Department for Transport is making available the document issued to Need to Sell scheme panel members as part of their training.

This ‘Panel Guidance’ document sets out the remit of the panel and the processes they must abide by, and is written with the Panel members only as the audience.

This is an internally produced document and it is not necessary for applicants to the scheme to read this document nor does the document supplement the Need to Sell scheme policy or Guidance and Application form. Please see this document above for information only.
