Celebrate Rail Week – Resources, Events & Careers

Rail Week celebrates the diverse and rewarding career opportunities available across the rail sector. It is a pioneering initiative which brings the rail industry closer to schools, teachers, career advisers and students.

The dedicated week of activity aims to address the skills shortage in rail-related roles and inspire a generation of young people through a series of events, visits and talks. The events for people at schools, colleges and universities aim to encourage them to consider careers in this great industry. Rail Week will also include a widespread schools outreach programme, facilitating ambassadors to get into the classroom and deliver inspirational activities designed for Rail Week.

Get on track – view official Rail Week events here and download a selection of activity packs.
