    Hi I've taken and passed the telephone interview and assessment day for FTPE but unfortunately didn't make it past managers interview.
    What I'd like to know is will other train operators ie Northern Rail acknowledge how far I have got with FTPE?
    I've also been informed that a pass mark from FTPE is a more desirable pass than other tocs (at least with the drivers assessments anyway, don't know so much about conductors, (hope so though))

    I did exactly the same thing pass everything and was put on hold with FTPE a week later got invited for Manager interveiw with Northern passed that and didn't have to sit any assessments because it was recognised that I had previously passed. Just had to pass my medical and references and signed contracts. Now I start my training 27th of this month.

    Cheers Paul

    I applied to Northern last June/July and I am still on hold now for FTPE and it's been since Feb 2015 so not long on hold but quite a long process from start of app to beginning your training.

    Cheers Paul

    Wonder if they will still recognise it even though I didn't pass managers interview.

    As long as it wasn't the Multi Modal Interview you failed then I believe your fine. It was the manager interview wasn't it? Then it isn't part of the assessment day/s and you won't have to re do your assements again only the manager interview also I think some TOCs could get you to do it again but guessing there.
