We want to hear from everyone who has an interest in a career in this exciting industry!


We are opening our doors to a small group of apprentices already employed within the rail sector in September 2017.

Our first full entry cohort will be in September 2018.

However, we have been overwhelmed with interest for September 2017, and are currently in negotiations with some employers about recruiting additional apprentices.  If you are particularly interested in commencing an apprenticeship in September 2017, please email enquiries@nchsr.ac.uk with your details outlining whether you are interested in Civil Engineering (Birmingham) or Track Systems (Doncaster) and we will be in touch if any vacancies arise.

All applications

The suggested entry requirements for our apprenticeships and courses are listed on the individual course pages.  We want to hear from those leaving school and college, those within the industry looking to up-skill, and those who are looking for a change of direction.

We are committed to improving diversity in the sector, so are particularly keen to hear from individuals who are currently under-represented.  Remember that where you come from and where you go is up to you.  Don’t think that if you have started a ‘vocational’ route, such as an apprenticeship that you can’t move to a HNC, or vice-versa – we can advise you on your options, and make sure you use your skills and talents to the best effect.

We will support you through the process, from your initial application online, through our assessment process, to the point where we produce your personalised learning plan.  So, let’s get started…
