We’ve been supporting this year’s National Apprenticeship Week, which draws to a close today , and we’re looking to recruit 150 apprentices across the country to help deliver the Railway Upgrade Plan, to make the railway bigger and better for Britain for years to come.
We’re calling out for the next generation of engineers who want to learn on the job and build a career in engineering, and we’ve extended the opportunity to apply for the September 2017 intake of our Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme until the end of National Apprenticeship Week – Monday 13 March.
Network Rail’s apprentices are guaranteed a job on successful completion of the three-year course. The retention rate of those coming through the apprenticeship scheme is around 75 per cent – much higher than the national average for engineering (55 per cent).
