Could it be more they are being delayed due to 1st major timetable update now being May 18 instead of December 17? Of course this means people will have to reapply but there still may be hope of getting a course but more likely to be end of this year, beginning of next year if it is due to this.

This would make sense.

Thanks for letting me know.

You'd think Northern would issue an email to people though.
Still I suppose it could be an on-going issue between management and the union so they may not be able to.

There's no issue between union and company regarding training of new drivers. If anything, union will push for more trainees so that no rest day working is required.

Issues with courses in Manchester come both from depots (full of trainees without instructors, not enough instructors) and training school (lack of people to train you).
Hence courses planned for later on in the year have been cancelled or I should say postponed for currently unidentifiable time.

Hi,

Still no reply for myself.

Going off what some others have been saying seems northern may have put a pause on the recruitment process due to them pushing back the updated time table which required the new drivers.

Another 80 drivers to be required at Piccadilly, from an extremely reliable source.

Vacancies aren't the issue, it's the lack of trainers

Losing three trainers is going to have an impact, but the company are famously slow at sorting out genuine problems such as this so they are to blame.
They've known about two of the three trainers leaving for some time, so why not get the vacancies out straight away and test the waters of interest for the role? Can only be poor management within the higher levels of training and development, which sadly, is a common theme in this company, I'm sure you'll agree?

Good Morning all,
I have been successful at the DMI stage but it now appears that I'm on hold. The interview was several months ago with no further correspondence. I appreciate things move slowly, just testing the water to see if anyone has had an assessment date or know when the next stage will be?

Cheers in advance

The whole lot seems to be on a slowdown, I applied for a job dispatching trains from Salford Crescent last month and I still haven't hear anything
