Coaching call you’ll essentially just be told a lot of information about the day, I’d say just sound really upbeat and write down any important things that they tell you

Thankyou. The only problem is that the date where on the portal it says event Milton Keynes Coaching interview 6th June, so I’m guessing that’s the date of the interview I’ll be given but I’m busy that day and have had something booked for months, do you think I’d be offered another interview because I can’t make that day? I’m a bit nervous as I want this apprenticeship so so bad.

I think they ask on the phone if the date is okay just say your not available and they should work around it, they’ll expect that some people can’t make the dates without prior notice

It’s no problem, I’m sure it will work out they know people have plans and you can’t be expected to be available all the time without even having the job yet. The interview might end up being a different place though

Hi everyone I have my assessment centre on Thursday, is there anything I can do before hand like are there any things I should be researching about network rails history for example. Also on my call she mentioned I will be picking what career path to take whilst at the assessment centre like track engineer or overhead lines etc. Where can I do some research on them and what sort of questions are there in the interview that aren’t scenario based? Thanks in advance

Definitely research what role you want and have a few reasons ready why you’d like the role and why you think it will suit you. In the interview they will get you to tell you something about yourself, hobbies etc. And then some questions more specific to the role e.g. how do you feel about working at heights, have you got any experience working with electrics or working outside, nights etc etc. It’s mostly scenario based and they are big on health and safety

Thanks for the help guys 🙌🏼 what’s the girls to boys ratio like? Guessing mainly lads? And does anyone know if there’s a certain amount of people successful from each day like 2 from one group for example?

Yeah majority lads, it’s works by the depots bidding for apprentices in different fields. So if you go for a bigger/busier depot there will be more places available, they take on 300 apprentices a year in two blocks so 150 start in September. I’d imagine most of those places go down south

Okay thanks I’m applying for what i think is a less busy / big depot so means less apprentice jobs given but less people to compete with I guess?

There was 2 girls at my interview including me but like 5 boys so probably like 60/40 when we get there? Maybe more like 70/30 though. I’m not sure how many people from my assessment centre got the job but I got it and so did the other girl but I haven’t been in contact with anyone else, we did apply for different depots though I think it just depends on how many vacancies there are. They didn’t ask me anything about the company at all but have something prepared just in case, maybe print off some notes to look through while your waiting that’s what I did as we were waiting a while and I couldn’t just sit on my phone. Interviewers are really nice it’s just like a conversation but shake their hands when you go in and thank them for their time when you come out. Have a back up career path in mind because they might ask what your second choice is
