    Did you hit reply to their email or send a separate email to Recruitment1 email address? I did not receive any automated response to my email with details re: certificates. Did you or anyone get an automated response immediately and then a response from the team? Thanks in advance!

    The future of train driving

    I echo the above. It is great that you are thinking about the future and raise a point that will no doubt worry others. I have seen previous posts about the topic, but it was a while ago. Good luck in pursuing your dream.

    I agree it is a risk not to start without anything to confirm the role moving forwards. Not as much of a risk if anyone receives confirmation that their offer remains valid as the course was postponed and they will rejoin when courses begin in the future. A really great thing for any rail...

    Great news! In any of your discussions was there a mention of the offer you have accepted being withdrawn or was it a case of the course being put back and you would still be employed?
