A week-long celebration of all that is great about rail; Rail Week will see a series of nation-wide events aimed at enticing young people to consider future careers in the industry.
Students from schools, colleges and universities, as well as parents, teachers and careers advisors, will get to see first-hand the exciting projects, facilities, and vast range of employment opportunities available in rail. Created by Young Rail Professionals (YRP), the project aims to reduce the skills gap in rail by putting the industry into the hearts and minds of young people, and improving the understanding of the careers that make it happen.
Rail Forum Midlands are looking to assist the Young Rail Professionals, by bringing together businesses within the East Midlands who are planning to get involve in the project. The meeting will enable companies to share their ideas and establish a comprehensive programme of regional events.
