Let's keep working together to make travel as safe as possible. We're still doing enhanced cleaning and limiting available seats. You can help by avoiding busy times, using contactless payment where you can, keeping your distance and taking your litter with you.

You must wear a face covering throughout your journey, unless you are exempt.

During the course, you'll continue to develop the skills you've already learned by attending in-house courses and manufacturer's technical courses.

During your apprenticeship, you'll be paired with a fully trained mentor to guide you through the programme.

We will also offer membership of the Society of Operations Engineers upon completion.
