National Infrastructure Solutions (NIS), launched by former youth international footballer and Royal Marine commando Davie Carns in 2018, is looking to support hundreds of workers to retrain and upskill.

“Our region has a major employment opportunity with billions of pounds going into rail infrastructure projects planned for or passing through our area,” said Carns.


“Brexit is restricting the flow of European workers, meaning we are in a desperate rush to train people so they can enter employment in the sector and, equally importantly, upskill those already in the industry into more advanced roles to create sustainable careers for all.”


He added: “What we have been doing over the last two years is listening to employers to develop a series of on-site and virtual courses that will equip individuals with core practical rail skills and qualifications covering leadership and management, health and safety and behavioural qualifications."


“Our partnership with the City of Wolverhampton College is also important and the facilities we have there are unrivalled in the UK. This gives us the opportunity to train people in a safe environment on the type of equipment and technology they’ll be working on once they are trackside.”


It has so far trained 300 individuals, with 70% of participants going on to find sustained employment.
