An organisation that works to provide skilled workers for the railway industry has embarked on a recruitment drive for new Apprentices.
Railway training company ARC Academy operates specialist training sites around the UK and successful Apprenticeship applicants receive thirteen weeks of training on-site before being placed in rail companies to further their career development.
Recruits aged eighteen are being sought for the academy’s sites at Bury, Watford, Plymouth, Derby and Barnsley.
ARC Academy UK, which is based in Cardiff, offers a comprehensive portfolio of training programmes to the rail industry and providing Apprenticeships is a key part of what it provides.
Head of Social Media Callum Turnbull said: “We are definitely seeing increasing demand from the industry for Apprentices and our latest recruitment drive is designed to bring on a new generation of talent.
“We are looking for eighteen-year-olds who are keen to explore a career in the railway industry, which has always valued Apprentices and offers great opportunities for career advancement.
“At a time when the railway industry is in danger of losing its experienced people through retirement, we are seeing more companies acknowledging the benefit of bringing through the young generation.
“Apprenticeships allows them to have access to young people who represent the future of the industry and we are keen to talk to as many potential Apprentices as possible.”
To bring through the young talent, ARC Academy UK’s trainers, assessors and management team have been carefully selected and all of them have extensive experience within the rail industry.
The ARC Academy is a fully accredited NSARE, City Guilds, Edexcel and EAL centre along with ISO9001 and Matrix certification.
