MGB opens Apprentice Academy to help address skills shortage

In July 2014 MGB opened an Apprentice Academy in a brand new facility established with the sole and dedicated purpose of training the UK railway signalling design engineers of the future.

Recent studies by Network Rail and NASARE have shown the nation already has a massive shortfall of competent engineers given the size and scale of future railway projects.

The academy will provide dedicated railway and signalling design training, while apprentices complete a level 4 higher apprenticeship in electrical and electronic engineering. the 4 year programme will have a mix of academic study, on the job training, industry recongnised courses, and on-site placements.
