When do you get told about your role ? There's me thinking you only get to know your roles when you get to Yarnfield.

I guess Job title is the same for everyone Trainee Openreach Engineer but roles are different. What is the role code for FVR ? I just looked at one of my email from BT and it states role code: TMNE2 what ever that means. Anyone shed any light on this? I did initally apply for Openreach Network engineers role.

I had a holiday booked for beginning of July. Got the call with start date of mid June but when I mentioned the holiday was then told I would have to start September. I said no, I'll change the holiday which cost me £160 so I could keep the June start date.

YOU DONT GET TOLD UNTIL YOU GET TO YARNFIELD YOUR ROLE,EVERYONE IS UNDER SERVICE DELIVERY TRAINEE OPENREACH ENGINEER,UNTIL YOU GET TO YARNFIELD THEN SOMETIMES YOUR ROLE AND EVEN YOUR TRAINNG CENTRE CAN CHANGE.
SO THERE IS THE MOST POPULAR ONE WHICH IS CANELO OR SOME INITIALS LIKE THAT WHICH IS UP THE POLES AND INTO CUSTOMERS HOUSES,AND THATS 12 WEEKS TRAINING.THEN THERE IS THE FVR(FAULT VOLUME REDUCTION)WHERE YOU ARE IN THE STREET CABS AND ALSO INSTALLING NEW ONES AND THE NEW TECHNOLOGY,OTHER BT ENGINEERS SAY THIS IS A GOOD ONE TO GET INTO AND ALSO YOU DO YOUR UNDERGROUND TRAINING QUICKER WHICH PUTS YOU ONTO A HIGHER PAY GRADE AFTER 12 MONTHS,THIS ONE IS 11 WEEKS TRAINING,THERE WAS ONLY 10 OF US OUT OF THE 64 THAT WERE DOING THIS.THERE IS ALSO A SPLICING ROLE WHICH IS DIFFERENT ALLTOGETHER AND IS 17 WEEKS TRAINING,THESE LADS KNEW THEY WERE ALLREADY DOING THIS AND THEY DONT GET A VAN AS THEY WILL BE OUT IN THE CHERRY PICKER VANS IN TEAMS.
IFYOU WERE INFORMED THAT YOU WERE GOING INTO FVR YOU WERE LUCKY AS NONE OF US 10 KNEW AND WERE ALL A BIT SUPRISED AS ITS A DIFFERENT TRAINING MATRIX TO THE ONE WE RECEIVED.AS I SAY IVE MISSED OUT AS NOT GOING BACK FOR 6-8 WEEKS BUT IM GETTING REGULAR TEXTS FROM MY MATE WHOS THERE GIVING ME THE HEADS UP ON ANYTHING.

THAT CODE IS YOUR CONTRACT CODE THERES NOTHING TO LINK YOU TO A ROLE UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD BUT NONE OF US 10 WHERE.IT DOESNT MAKE A MASSIVE DIFFERENCE BUT THE TRAINING/BUDDYING SCHEDULE IS DIFFERENT AND YOU GO LIVE QUICKER.ONE LAD FROM LONDON THOUGHT HE WAS DOING CANELO AND WAS DOING IT DOWN THE ROAD FROM HIM IN CROYDON BUT THEN FOUND OUT HE WAS DOING A DIFFERENT ROLE AND AFTER YARNFIELD WAS GOING TO BOLTON!!!!

LOADS TO TAKE IN BUT JUST GIVING YOU THE HEADS UP ON WHAT TO EXPECT FIRST DAY AS I NEVER HAD THIS.ALSO YOU ARE ALL CLASSED AS APPRENTICES WHICH THEY DONT TELL YOU,IT DOESNT REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO YOUR MONEY OR NOTHING BUT ITS BECAUSE YOU ARE ACTUALLY STUDYING FOR A NVQ QUALIFICATION WHILST CARRYING OUT YOUR TRAINING AND THEN BT CAN CLAIM MONEY BACK FOR EACH COMPLETED APPRENTICE.ITS VERY GOOD REALLY AS YOUR GETTING A PROPER QUALIFICATION THROUGH AN APPRENTICESHIP WITHOUT BEING ON £3 AN HOUR!!!
