Yeah I think most of the apprenticeships must be track based on what they said at my assessment day. Buzzing to get started, did NR say anything about an open day at your interviews?

I don't think so, it would have been cool for everyone to meet before. We arrive on the 29th, but I think we'll have an induction and they'll take time to show us around and probably ease us into the routine.

They did at mine they said we will have the opportunity to look around before we start and come with our parents and have the opportunity to meet the other apprentices ahead of time but I haven’t heard of it being mentioned to anyone else so I’m not sure if it’s going to happen it would be nice if it did though
Yeah, it'll be really cool. Have you guys read your contract and chosen your pension scheme?

No I haven’t :/ I feel like it’s such a big decision I’m worried I’ll make the wrong one that won’t be good enough for me down the line. Have you

I've read everything except for the pension scheme. My uncle is an accountant, so I'm gonna have him go through it with me, but I'm pretty sure it's not a fixed thing, so if you wish to make amendments later down the line, you should be able to resubmit a form.

Yeah I thought that would be the case. I’m gonna have a sit down after work tonight and have a little read through. Did everyone get the depot they wanted as well? I didn’t. Mine was changed as well. Lost out on the inner London allowance because of the change

Yeah, I'll be at Euston, that's a great location for me. That's a shame, but you can still get the outer London allowance, right?

I’d have preferred being central to in the sticks as they’ve put me. I still get outer London but I have to pay toll charge everyday as well now to get to work which is a pain but during the 3 years you switch depots a few times to get experience. I just hope they don’t push me out any further😂

I knew we'd be moving about, but I forgot it'll be depots too, that's cool.

I think it’ll be good for us to get experience to see how different places do things and meeting new people. I don’t think it’s much, just 2 or 3 times throughout the apprenticeship

Do you know if the movements to different depots is temporary and then you go back? Just I’m planning on renting a flat closer to my depot as I’m almost an hour away but I’m worried about moving about
