Will do my best to let you know what I can. Well be leaving around 7:30 tomorrow to collect vans from magna park Leicester and yeah we are free to drive home from there probably by dinner time. We will collect a packed lunch from yarnfield before leaving.


All go to magna park,then furthest away to home get let off first and they do 2 groups.There is no cut off point but the lads on mine who had 2 hours to travel were in second group as there were a good 20/25 with 4/5 hours,theres some jocks on there with 8 hours!!!

Your UIN is on the email from yarnfield that you get the week before you go and it also tells you where you will be training after your first 2 weeks

Yes everyone does 2 weeks at yarnfield as of this year then there are roughly 8 differebt locations around the country where you will do your staggered training.your not allways put in the one closest to you either as their could be 10 people even closer,also its role specific,so for me being in FVR they only do that at yarnfield,i think if your on fibre splicing,its bolton only,if your based in cornwall there is one in southampton ,so you should get in that

Im still on training schedule and on BT's books just on sort of sicksmile so can drop into anyones group on day 3 and pick it up.Its gone amazingly really as ive lost 15 pounds in 8 days so have near enough done it and i know it will slow down but dont want to rush it then go back to yarnfield where is 3 buffets a day and put it on so just gonna keep going,i reckon the july 3rd/10th,i prob could drop in on june 12th but got another job in meantime so no need to rush it,hes told me i have to have at least a month off anyway due to wellbeing policy.
