Wow, quicker turnaround than I thought! It’s sooo exciting, I’m looking forward to getting the medical completed so I can finally have a confirmed start date.
I don’t drink or take drugs, but you’re right, there is the fear in the back of my mind that I’ll fail it. Strange.
Is anyone concerned about if training will go ahead and our employment will continue if there is another lockdown?
I did ask my LOM about this and they were really adamant it wouldn’t. However, leaving my current job, I worry that I might get stuck in a difficult position if another full blown lockdown occurs. Or is that not a problem at Network Rail?
Thank you to everyone for all of the replies, I’m so grateful to have found this forum
There won't be an issue employment if there is another lockdown, it didn't cause a problem the first time around. The company where very good about the whole thing really. For people who had confirmed start dates within the lockdown period they started but stayed at home, and for people who where part way through IST they simply went home until they could resume.
