16-19 opportunities

Since January 2014 Real Skills have been offering opportunities for young people looking to embark on a career in the Rail Industry.

16 – 19 Year olds are developing their pre-employment skills under the guidance of our trainers who each have at least 20 years’ experience in the rail industry. Our knowledgeable trainers then prepare and enable our 16-19 year olds to embark on a career in the Rail Industry.

We offer the following opportunites for 16-19 year olds:

  • Pre-Apprenticeship – working on practical railway skills and helping to develop students Maths and English skills.
  • Traineeship – providing students with the necessary knowledge and understanding to enable employment within the rail industry along with essential work experience
  • Apprenticeship – allowing students to have hands on experience by working with a railway infrastructure team.
