We believe in investing in our people and in developing their skills ensuring that they are competent, safe and multi-skilled, this is beneficial to our workforce and further enhances our ability to meet our clients goals and objectives
We have recently demonstrated our commitment to effective, targeted, and certificated training with the development of:
1. The Railway Engineering Track Apprenticeship Programme
A joint initiative with Waltham Forest College
What former London Mayor and Mayoral Candidate Ken Livingston had to say about the 1stinrail Limited apprenticeship initiative: “I am delighted with what Waltham
Forest College and 1stinrail rebuild the concept of young people going into apprenticeships, getting skills, and achieving their full potential in life’’.
2. The Track Worker Training School – City & Guilds Accredited.
To tackle potential risk-at-source – for new starters to the UK Construction and Railway sector, we have built and set up a training area which replicates the working environment before deployment of new starters to work sites.
Our track training set up includes a complex track layout, confined space, artificial lighting, platform area (including Tactiles and coping Stones) and drainage. The basic understanding of these features are essential to their safety and well being at work.
