Diversity is key to the future of rail

The  National College for HS2 remains on track to reach its learner target of 396 learners by the end of this academic year, it is bolstering activity to encourage more women into the rail and engineering sectors in 2019. The College is preparing a recruitment campaign to encourage more females to consider careers within the rail and engineering sectors. It will continue to speak directly with potential learners – encouraging more females to get on board – through its employer network and its programme of school visits and open days.

Clair Mowbray, chief executive of the National College for High Speed Rail, said: “As a national training provider, we’re focussed on attracting and upskilling the talent our country needs to deliver major transport infrastructure projects.  However, our ambitions are about much more than simply making up the numbers that are needed to plug the skills gaps.

NSAR supports gender diversity as it is better for people, better for business and is better for rail. We will be joining the Women in Rail Big Diversity Challenge taking place 27 June 2019 at Newark Showground.  For more information click here.
