Severn Valley Railway runs a Heritage Skills Training Academy offering Traineeships and Apprenticeships in heritage railway engineering. Several opportunities are available each year for school-leavers and others with a passion for engineering, and ideally a demonstrable interest in preserved railways or other heritage engineering.
The full programme lasts four years, embracing nationally-recognised Level 2 and Level 3 engineering qualifications. Applicants with suitable qualifications and/or experience can be fast-tracked and start at the appropriate point in the programme. Those able and wishing to do so can continue beyond the apprenticeship, with SVR support to do higher qualifications, including a degree.
Salary: £4,000 p/a for two days work each week (other three at college) in the first two years, rising to £8,000 p/a for four days work (one at college) in the third year and £14,000 p/a for four days work (one at college) in the fourth year
Closing date: Applications accepted all year round for the next intake.
