I've been lurking in the background forever, so I do apologize for not contributing . I just recieved my offer for Trainee Train Driver Hex, so I just wanted to know, roughly if it can be said by them on training courses now:
1-How long by estimates is the course (I've been told 7 months or longer due to Class 387 conversion)
2-How have the Holidays been spread out for them on the October course?
3- what is the Training Salary, as I couldn't get s definitive answer from HR.
Bit of background to my questions: Currently Civil Servant on around £35k, but money isn't the issue per se. Before, I was in the railways for 3 years as a Manager and then Rail Operator before I left due to there being a lack of Driver roles. More pressing for me however ,is at least having some time to go to Colombia where my fiancée lives so that I can meet her parents before she may come here with their minds at rest.
Sorry again , and also for the long post.
