Plugging the skills gap to ensure the future of the rail industry is a necessity

Key figures within the rail industry were brought together in London in order to address the skills shortage at  SSE Enterprise Rail. The event was hosted at the ICE with keynote speaker Sir Peter Hendy (Chairman of Network Rail) who discussed how we can inspire a new generation of rail innovators to take the industry forward.

The rail industry must deliver over £100bn worth of work over the next decade; but in order to deliver that, the industry has to ensure it attracts the right skills and talent into the rail sector.  NSAR works tirelessly to push the skills agenda for the rail sector. We work with employers to develop apprenticeships, producing in-depth analysis and insight on the demand vs supply of skills, an integrated approach to education, training and professional development, as well as providing quality assurance of training provision.
