Into Rail

into rail is a university engagement initiative that aims to address the current skills gap in the UK by linking university students directly to the professionals and organisations within the rail industry.  into rail is an improved engagement programme building on the successes of the Routes into Rail University Presentation Programme (RiRUPP) which has been running since autumn 2014. The programme has already reached hundreds of university students and also enabled several undergraduate industry placements. into rail aims to expand its reach to more students and universities, and significantly improve the quality of engagement by developing and managing a network between universities and the rail industry.

into rail is delivered by Young Rail Professionals (YRP) on behalf of the rail industry through Routes into Rail (RiR), a sub-group of the National Skills Academy for Railway (NSAR) Industry Promotion Steering Group (IPSG) to help facilitate the implementation of the overall rail promotion strategy that is set by the IPSG.
