Upskilling the next generation of rail talent is a core objective for Morson Vital Training and it’s great to see the latest cohort of London apprentices slotting straight into our Canning Town gangs.

Led by Sunil Madhavan, former training design and delivery specialist for TfL, the new Intermediate Track Maintenance apprenticeship currently has seven apprentices aged 18-24 on the programme. Training is being delivered in partnership with TfL to provide learners with a range of track experience, which has enabled them to establish successful positions within each gang. Working shoulder-to-shoulder with our skilled workforce has seen each apprentice integrate successfully within our core team, working on exciting projects and beginning to take on their own responsibilities.

Following this success, the 12-18 month Track Maintenance apprenticeship scheme will recruit its second cohort of learners at the end of this year, working closely with colleges, the National Apprenticeship Service and using social media tools to attract local talent – especially females – into a career in rail.
