Investing in People and Skills

With plans for high levels of investment in the rail industry over the coming years, there is a need to attract talented, diverse and flexible individuals to careers in rail in order to deliver a competitive and sustainable UK rail supply chain. To meet this demand and fulfil the skills gaps in the industry, the sector has responded with the Rail Sector Skills Delivery Plan – an ambitious plan to help deliver a sustainable skills supply chain that will meet the skills needs of employers today and in the future.

The plan will:

  • Support the industry to achieve 20,000 apprentices in rail
  • Establish a skills intelligence unit to provide up-to-date skills forecasts and monitor progress on bridging the skills gaps identified
  • Develop a promotion and attraction campaign to showcase careers in rail as exciting and well paid, to attract a diverse workforce to the industry
  • Develop a network of quality training facilities and trainers
