What we do

Up until January 2010, we outsourced 95% of our rail training and assessment to different external companies all over the country. We soon realised that our employees were receiving inconsistent training. As a result, we set up an in-house rail training and assessment team. We also now offer this service to a range of external clients.

We offer an extensive range of technical training services, including safety-critical, first aid, manual handling and fire marshal training.

Our accreditations


For the third year running, we have achieved the highest accreditation - ‘NSAR Gold’. In 2015, we achieved the rating of Outstanding before the programme changed.

NSAR visit our training centre every July to undertake an inspection against the RTAS rules and NSAR’s quality assurance framework, which mirrors the inspection judgment categories of the current Ofsted inspection framework.

We achieved ‘Gold’ in the following four categories:

  • Leadership and management
  • Quality of provision
  • Learner outcomes
  • Personal development, behaviour and welfare.

This supports our ethos of delivering world-class infrastructure and how we strive to go ‘above and beyond’ in everything we do!
