National College for High Speed Rail
Since 2010, iRail has attracted hundreds of school students from across the East Midlands as part of a programme to inform and engage young people on the range of career opportunities in the railway industry. This year iRail is in its 10th year and we are pleased to announce it is coming to The Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP area.
Now part of the Big Bang and Careers and Enterprise fund initiatives, iRail will be the highlight of the rail industry calendar, taking place at the new National College for High Speed Rail building Birmingham. iRail is a programme of inschool workshops and a celebration enterprise event.
The event not only showcases the rail industry but also demonstrates the science, apprenticeship and graduate engineering careers available in this growing area. It also provides an opportunity for key players in the rail industry to network and interact with each other and young people. Central to the day is the involvement of teams from local schools who go on industry visits and undertake engineering challenges to be judged by a panel of industry experts.
