What is Destination Rail?
Destination Rail is a STEM outreach programme, specifically focused on the rail industry. This event will provide students with a unique opportunity to engage with employers from Rail and related industries, and to access a wealth of information about careers, that are available now and in the future.
The programme aims to address the growing skills shortage in the rail sector. It highlights the true breadth of careers available, whilst breaking down many of the stereotypes associated with the industry.
Throughout the day students will be mentored by industry experts whilst taking part in exciting workshops. They will also be invited to solve the Destination Rail STEM Challenge and present their solutions to a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style panel of judges. Teachers will have the opportunity to learn more about what careers the industry can offer and network with industry professionals, in our unique teacher’s workshop.
The event not only showcases the rail industry, but also demonstrates the science, apprenticeship and graduate engineering careers, available in this growing area.

Exhibit at Destination Rail… it’s FREE!
Play your part and help break down stereotypes. Inspire and enthuse young people towards a career in rail.
As you are aware, the rail industry is in the grips of a severe and worsening skills shortage. Reports from National College for High Speed Rail reveal businesses will need to find 8,700 graduate-level engineers per year, over the next 10 years, in order to keep up with demand.
The industry recognises that one of the key ways in which we can address this critical issue and support development of our future talent is to engage with young people and show them the depth and breadth of careers in the rail industry and showcase many of the innovative projects this industry is involved in.
Destination Rail event is aimed at key stage 3/4 students and is designed to showcase the wealth of careers available in the Rail industry.
