Hey guys, finally back on SimSig after gruelling 4-5 months of IT coursework. I'm really pleased that I'm back on SimSig.

P.S.I see SimSig has developed Cardiff sims, I would like to thank all their help for making these sims.

About halfway through Y12 now, so thinking whether to do an apprenticeship in road/rail sector or go to university.

Great! Keep it up!
The only reason I'm fairly dormant on the forum is that the Windows PC I borrowed in order to play on the sims has been returned to its owner.

With regards to your situation, my suggestion is to go to university and train for a rail-based office job such as signaller at the ROC in York or some sort of manager/coordinator/local section signaller at a major station. For example, my friend Madeline now works on the Peterborough (Stevenage-Newark N. Gate) stretch of the ECML as the signalling and train deployment manager. Pay and conditions are favourable, she tells me that pay is around £80,000-£100,000 and she enjoys the job. N.B. She has also said the job would require working at various times throughout the day, perhaps good for someone like you all her (i.e. Someone in their late 20s) but definitely not for me!

Good luck!

It depends on what sort of job you want to do, and how suited you are to studying.

If you're interested in the Apprenticeship route, take a look at this Apprenticeship program from Network Rail: https://www.networkrail.co.uk/careers/apprenticeships/

If you're academically strong and are interested in the Engineering side of things, I can highly recommend an Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree. I'm just finishing mine, and the opportunities are endless: you can work in just about any industry you want to with that degree.
