We recognise the importance of developing future engineers in the rail industry, and support undergraduates seeking “year in industry” placements
Porterbrook’s MPDS (Managed Professional Development Scheme) qualification, accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, enables engineers to fulfil the competence requirements for registration. Porterbrook also offers a range of Higher Apprenticeships – in engineering, finance and business administration, with more on the horizon.
iRail Schools Outreach Events
Since 2010 Porterbrook has supported iRail - an education outreach event which aims to raise awareness of the variety of career opportunities in rail, and give pupils an inspiring behind-the-scenes glimpse of the industry.
