Network Rail Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme

Network Rail Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme
Britain relies on rail. Every day Network Rail gets 3 million people to their destination and thousands of tonnes of goods moved around the country. Rail is a greener and safer mode of transport so it's no surprise that our railway has seen passenger numbers increase more than 40% in the past decade alone. These numbers are expected to double by 2034.That means we have to run more trains, more often and more efficiently. And we need even more talented people on board to efficiently handle that challenge. Join our Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme and very soon you could be doing a critical job within our business.
Our Apprenticeship programme runs across five different areas - Electrification & Plant, Overhead Line, Signalling, Telecoms and Track. Whichever route you choose to take, you'll spend your first year in the training centre at HMS Sultan, in Gosport, Hampshire. This is where you'll learn the basics of your profession, working towards an NVQ2 and BTEC through a mix of academic work and hands-on practical experience. For your second and third years, you'll join an engineering maintenance team in your chosen location and get out and about with experienced colleagues.
While you're based on site, you'll also be working towards an NVQ3 in Railway Engineering. On top of this, you'll be going back to HMS Sultan to attend rail-specific technical courses and leadership training, to prepare you for a career at the top of your profession.
You'll need a minimum of four GCSEs A-C / four Scottish Standard 1-3, or equivalent. These have to include English, Maths and Science or Engineering. We'll accept a relevant BTEC / NVQ level 2 and above to replace Science or Engineering.
You don't need to have studied engineering previously as we'll teach you everything you need to know.
