Derby College Group Rail Academy

The Derby College Group Rail Employment & Skills Academy was established in mid-summer 2016 and brings together rail employers and the college to create a pipeline of future talent and ensure young people recognise the breadth of exciting opportunities in the industry

Porterbrook has sat on the Rail Employment & Skills Academy Board since day one and has been actively engaging with students through mentoring, engineering career insight days and other STEM events.

Porterbrook, alongside other rail industry organisations on the Board, has helped shape the curriculum delivered for both apprentices and full time students interested in pursuing rail related apprenticeships or careers, so that the skills gap can be reduced.
