Destination Rail Manchester 2020
Event providers: University of Salford
The Destination Rail programme has been developed to assist in encouraging more young people to consider rail careers to address the growing workforce skills gap in the industry. It encourages young people to look at the breadth of career opportunities in the industry and makes them aware of the progression routes to access these. It also highlights the knowledge and skills required to thrive in the industry.
The Destination Rail enterprise event is for 15 schools who each attended the event with a group of 6 NCOP learners. The day is made up of a carousel of challenge activities and the completion of a team enterprise challenge supported by Rail ambassadors and presentations of their outcomes to industry experts to compete to become the Manchester Destination Rail champions for 2020.
The programme will increase knowledge of the exciting careers the rail industry offers now and will look at the opportunities that HS2 will bring to the area. It will build knowledge and confidence for progression in an industry that is crying out for new talent.
