As a Rail Technologies Apprentice in Siemens Rail Automation (a part of Siemens Mobility), you will be part of a team delivering services and solutions to the world’s rail networks with the market leader in train control in the UK and globally.

As there are more people using rail links every day, there is a need for continuous improvement of the rail networks. With this comes an ever-growing need for Future Makers like you.

  • You will attend a programme of rail specific training spread over the 3 years
  • With the training received and experience gained, you will be able to produce a portfolio of work-based evidence which will enable you to gain a vocational competency qualification by the end of your apprenticeship. Typically, this would be an “Institute of Railway Signalling Engineers” (IRSE) license which is recognised globally
  • The knowledge and skills gained whilst on the programme will prepare you to take part in the delivery of future rail infrastructure projects
  • Upon successfully meeting the requirements, you will complete a BTEC Level 3 (or equivalent in Engineering)
