Our Work

We are the first in the UK to offer training on slab track systems that are used in the construction of high-speed rail lines, such as HS2, directly adjacent to a conventional rail track for training purposes.

So far, we have trained 300 individuals, with 70% of participants going on to find sustained employment.

Courses are available for both newcomers to the sector who want to gain the skills employers are looking for, and those already working in the rail industry who want to upskill and develop their knowledge further.

Duration: 4 weeks
