In Summer 2016, a pioneering pan-industry initiative brought the rail industry in all its guises closer to schools, teachers, career advisers and students. Rail Week celebrates the diverse and rewarding career opportunities available across the rail sector.
The dedicated week of activity aims to address the skills shortage in rail-related roles and inspire a generation of young people through a series of events, visits and talks. The events for people at schools, colleges and universities aim to encourage them to consider careers in this great industry. Rail Week will also include a widespread schools outreach programme, facilitating ambassadors to get into the classroom and deliver inspirational activities designed for Rail Week.
The Rail Week initiative has been the brainchild of the professional networking association Young Rail Professionals (YRP), supported by many organisations across the rail industry pledging to host events and reach out to schools, colleges and parents in their area. See our Collaborators page.
