Advanced Engineering Apprenticeship with Network Rail

Join us for three fascinating, surprising and career-advancing years as an apprentice.

Expert training, thousands of pounds in your pocket and a lifetime of engineering possibilities. When you're transforming Britain's vast railway network, you get more than just an education. You'll gain the kind of skills that can set you up for life.

What you’ll be doing

We’re vital to Britain’s future success, which means we could play a big part in yours. Our railway lines are the economic arteries of our nation. The vital work you will be doing will help keep the lines safe and reliable for the millions of people who use the railways every day.

In your first 21 weeks you’ll be one of 150 apprentices living and learning at Westwood, our world-class training facility. The rest of your scheme will be spent working from a depot close to home.

How we’ll reward you

An Advanced Apprenticeship means the chance to earn a real wage while you learn.

We pay you £9,579 during your first year, plus £1,265 for successful completion. During your 21 week residential stay at Westwood we’ll pay for your accommodation, three meals a day (brunch and dinner on Sundays), your work clothing and personal safety equipment.

This rises to £12,525 in the second year and £14,924 in the third year.

On top of this, you’ll get 28 days holidays, plus bank holidays.

The average salary our apprentices end up on £30,000 not including any additional enhancements!
