Network Rail Apprenticeships

As part of our Railway Upgrade Plan we have £25bn earmarked to invest in landmark initiatives between 2014 and 2019. We’re hoping you’ll choose to join us and help turn our plans in to reality; to create a world class railway and really make a difference to rail travel in Britain.

In your first 20 weeks you’ll be one of 150 apprentices living and learning at Westwood, our world-class training facility. You’ll take on academic study at the same time as working, and complete a series of work-based learning assignments and reports.

Depending on which path you choose, once out in the field you could be designing signalling schemes, investigating loss of power to a substation, repairing damaged track, or developing new telecoms technology, all whilst making sure the trains keep running to schedule.

You will be paid a competitive salary plus, during your 20 week residential training we’ll pay for your accommodation, three meals a day, your work clothing and personal safety equipment. On top of that you’ll get 28 days holiday, plus bank holidays.

You will need to have a good understanding of Maths and English, basic IT skills and are committed to further study and learning. You must be safety aware, with strong attention to detail and problem solving skills. You must be happy to listen and learn from others, with the confidence to communicate you own ideas and an ability to interpret and explain technical information.

Entry Requirements

  • You must be 18 or over
  • You’ll need at least four GCSE’s at A* - C (or four Scottish National’s at Level 5 or equivalent).
  • We also accept a relevant BTEC/NVQ level 2 or above to replace Science or Engineering.
