Local young people are being invited to become apprentices working on the Cambrian Railway and other lines in Wales.

Network Rail, which maintains the Cambrian Railway and railways in the UK, has appealed for young people in the area to apply for 11 apprenticeship engineering places available with the organisation.

“Apprentices will have the opportunity to work on the ambitious Railway Upgrade Plan, providing plenty of opportunities for budding engineers to get stuck into a wide range of projects that will transform the way people travel around Wales and the borders,” said a spokesperson.

The scheme is open to applications until Friday, 22 September.

Apprentices are guaranteed a job upon completion of the three-year course and more than four in five (83%) of those who started on the scheme a decade ago are still working for the organisation today.

Andy Thomas, Network Rail’s route managing director for Wales, said: “Network Rail’s apprenticeship scheme is a great opportunity to gain valuable paid work experience, transferable skills and recognised qualifications in one of Britain’s most exciting industries.

"Our people are our greatest asset and central to delivering for our customers a safe, reliable, affordable and growing railway, connecting communities with each other, connecting people with their jobs and supporting economic growth more broadly in Wales and the borders as part of our Railway Upgrade Plan.”
