    My sister has just had a invite to a assessment day today. I’ve still not heard anything as yet.
    She said it mentioned they was looking for more females at the application stage. I told her about the vacancies and she’s beat me to a assessment :)

    Oops
    Just actually read that I can travel for free on the train.

    next question would be regarding it saying that I may only travel on that specific date.
    Ideally I would stay over the night before however, any way around that?

    It was 10th november. I really want to do this but also dont want to start doing it and maybe get a driver one (small chance) I dunno if doing the conductor one will affect any thing to do with the driver I didnt expect it so abit unprepared ha ha

    I've still not heard anything. 10th of January would have been ideal. Hopefully I hear something tomorrow.

    Mine is the same, I read further up in the post that they have courses for jan/feb June/July and another one, 3 in total next year, so maybe we will get invited in next week or later and could be for them future courses?

    On the 1st assessment day everyone seemed to get the invite email on the same day so it looks like I’ll have to hope for the feb date.

    I was being ironic, as it's a fairly poorly kept secret that the railway no longer recruits on talent or ability. I'm sure the rise in SPADs etc is just pure coinicidene lol

    Trying to figure out how they are doing this. Im assuming they just go through a bunch of applications and once they have enough for that assesment day then you have to wait for the next? Almost starting to feel like pot luck whether you get an invite or not. or could it possibly be done alphabetically? daft sugesstions i know! XD

    Someone further back who I think works for TPE said it’s the ones with the highest scores from the applications who get invited first and then they go down that list. Remember we did 2 initial online tests when applying. I still haven’t received a rejection email so that’s my bit of hope.
