23rd November 2017: External Event – Transportation Insight Day – Northampton

The National Training Academy for Rail (NTAR) will be holding a one day event at their purpose built training facility in Northampton. Designed specifically for ex-forces personnel, the day will illustrate how valuable skills and experiences can be translated for roles within the Rail industry. If you are interested in a second career within the transportation industry, do not miss this opportunity to meet with professionals and gain insight into the different careers available.

NTAR will also be promoting a variety of roles that require a range of skills sets, with a large focus on the engineering sector.
Also present will be many of the top rail companies including Siemens, Bombardier, Hitachi, Eurostar and Northern Rail, who all recognise the invaluable skills of Service Leavers. You will have the opportunity to speak with potential employers and see which skills they are really looking for. Tours of the state-of-the-art training NTAR facility will be running throughout the day.

The event will coincide with the launch of a brand new Traction and Rolling Stock qualification, which qualifies for ELCAS funding, and enables potential ex-forces employees to gain a rail specific qualification before they start working in industry – making them work ready from day one. The course is Level 3, a combination of theoretical and practical training and will take up to two weeks to complete, 5 or 10 days depending on previous experience.

With no cost to attend, the day offers a full agenda with great networking, case studies of how others have make the journey into industry, and the chance to explore how military gained knowledge can be translated for rail.
