Are you on board with Skills Live?

NSAR is partnering with DWP to highlight job opportunities across their Jobcentre Plus network using Skills Live (a video insight platform) to get more people into employment across the rail industry. 

Productivity, Skills and Technology Symposium 

21st March 2019, Crawley College  

Join us for the first in a series of events focusing on productivity, skills and technology. This event is for employers and will cover topics such as:  

  • Human factors and non-technical skills
  • Mental well-being and its link to productivity
  • New technologies for rail employers 

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.


Finding it difficult to manage staff training records? Need a way to quickly determine your workforce’s level of competency? Look no further than SkillsID! 

The online 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.  

External Quality Assurance
