Network Rail in Favour of Apprenticeships
At Network Rail apprenticeships have been successful as a lot of graduates feel they have achieved life goals because of the scheme they undertook. From last year 52% of graduates were the first from their friends to buy a house, as well as 43% of the graduates feeling that they are on track for a higher management position and 71% more likely to be promoted than their friends.
With these high statistics Network Rail are excited to be recruiting another 150 apprentices in their three year programme, who will learn a variety of elements in the railway industry. The scheme is broken-down into tracks, signals, telecoms and electrification and plant engineering programmes. Network Rail feel that if you have the right characteristics then an individual can excel and have as successful a career as someone who took the university route.
Our MD, Richard Smith, has previously visited schools and colleges to inspire the next generation to consider a route into the rail industry. He explains what the rail industry can offer and that it is not limited to those seeking to go to university or just for the likes of engineers, but any profession.
Within our own business tusp support apprenticeship schemes as we currently employ Lisa who is our Business Administration Apprentice. Lisa has been at tusp since July 2015 and has flourished by experiencing all elements of the business, from marketing to accounts and even recruitment. She has been gaining new skill sets and is now able enhance her career choices.
So Network Rail are in favour of apprenticeships as are we at tusp, as we encourage the younger generation to have a career in the industry.
