Apprenticeship Standards and Assessment Plans
NSAR is supporting the Rail Engineering Employers Group in the development of new apprenticeship standards from Operative to Master Degree to make Rail apprenticeships more flexible and focused to address future business needs and embrace the scale of technological and operational change faced by the industry.
Rail Engineering Apprenticeship Standards and End Point Assessment Plans
Three new apprenticeship standards have been developed at levels 2, 3 and 4.
These standards have been developed on a core and options approach where all apprentices will take the core and rail context elements and then specialise in one of the specific pathways: Track, Traction & Rolling Stock, Overhead Line Electrification, Signalling, Telecommunications and Electrification.

Employer Occupational Brief to support delivery of the standards
Occupational briefs have been designed to support employers, colleges and training providers plan apprenticeship programmes and curriculum to ensure the outcome of the apprenticeship standards is met.
Detailed Requirements Documents
