For one intensive week we are going to celebrate all that is great about rail to inspire students at schools, colleges and universities with an exciting programme of events across the UK.

Young people, parents, teachers and careers advisors will get to see first-hand the exciting projects and facilities and range of jobs in rail.

Young Rail Professionals (YRP) has created the Rail Week project because we know first hand that the rail sector is a great place to work, with exciting projects to get involved in, good career prospects, and a wide range of different roles to undertake.

During Rail Week, the rail sector will open its doors and go out into the community to deliver exciting interactive rail activities by:

  • Hosting tours of depots, factories, control centres, stations, etc.,
  • Giving public lectures and seminars about incredible projects,
  • Volunteering staff to promote rail in schools as Rail Week Ambassadors.

Rail Week can be whatever you want it to be. If you have a great idea shout about it and show off to the world what we can do together!

Through Rail Week, we hope that all young people from all backgrounds will consider the rail sector when thinking about their future prospects and make our Skills Gap a thing of the past.
