Does anyone know if Northern are planning on starting any new conductor courses at Leeds in the near future?
I'm aware previous courses are still on going but not sure if new ones are on hold with the lockdown etc.
I also think some are starting in Manchester but not heard about Leeds.

Good to hear they are still running then, doesn't look like I'm going to be on either of those though.

Yeah I just got the standard response of:
We're still awaiting confirmation of future course dates and that I'm still in the pool but if nothing is offered within the 9months from interview I'll have to reapply.

Gives me 6 months left so I'm not giving up hope.

I am in the same boat, but I've only been waiting 3 weeks and that feels like a lifetime. I'm not sure if they have to finish the 12 week course before they start another one or they run courses concurrently so maybe something will pop up for say April time? There was some jobs recently advertised for York,Leeds and Blackburn so they will need courses too so fingers crossed won't be too long for us!

Hi all,

just to give you an idea on waiting periods, I passed online test in March last year. Had zoom interview in July. Start my training on 15th March ( don’t know where yet) I did fail medical on hearing in one ear but HR have been brilliant and they’re sending me to have a rail standard hearing aid fitted tomorrow so I can still start on March 15th. So as you can see, you need to be patient and hang in there! Hope this helps?
