Skills Intelligence Model

NSAR's specialist team utilises a one-of-a-kind Skills Intelligence Model (SIM) to guide government, industry and business decision-making on skills forecasting and investment requirements.

The model is updated annually, providing an overview and audit of the UK rail industry workforce with detailed insights on future workforce requirements. It can be used by businesses to provide a unique overview of their own workforce.

Annual Rail Workforce Survey

The Rail Workforce Survey is an annual survey collected and compiled by NSAR to build the dataset that informs its Skills Intelligence Model. It is the most complete and accurate representation of the UK Rail workforce.

The survey helps create a clear picture of the industry workforce, which enables the industry and businesses to set direction.
