Skills Live

A digital platform that rail industry employers can use to connect with young people who may not have considered careers in rail. 

Using video, Skills Live works to address the skills shortage by enabling employers to showcase a  range of job roles in rail and supporting employers by promoting greater diversity in the workplace.


The cloud-based platform delivers a centralised and secure online record of each individual’s competencies, qualifications and training plans which is easily accessible to both the employer and the individual on a computer, phone or tablet.
