Railway Futures

We are teaming up with a number of industry partners to deliver an exciting online careers event for pupils at secondary schools.

Railway Futures will showcase the exciting combination of innovation, engineering and technology in the railways, and look to the future of sustainability in the sector. It will also feature the breadth of careers available in the rail industry, looking at the different sectors and routes into them.  

We will be running three interactive sessions where participants pupils can hear from professionals from across the industry, learn more about what they do, help them solve real-world problems and ask them questions.

Your ticket includes all three sessions so you can you can choose the ones you’d like to attend, one or all three.


  • 10.00–10.40 Engineer Like Me
  • 11.00–11.40 Operation: Sustainability
  • 13.30–14.10 Routes into the Industry

We will also host a virtual exhibition where our partners will share different career-related resources, information and activities on their individual stands.
