What will the apprentice be doing?

As a Rail Engineering degree apprentice based in our Manchester office, you will assist in supporting engineers in the production of designs for railway enhancements. Typical tasks will include obtaining record information, producing site layout drawings using specialist software (which you will be trained in the use of), and calculations to provide power for the line. Where practical, you'll get the opportunity to carry out site inspections and see the projects come to life.

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

You will attend London South Bank University to study a Rail Engineering degree apprenticeship (on a block release basis) and gain a BEng, and the opportunity to gain your Incorporated Engineer status with your chosen professional institution. You will also be enrolled onto a bespoke internal development programme to support you to attain the knowledge, skills and behaviour that will help you successfully achieve your apprenticeship.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

As this is a permanent position, after gaining your degree, WSP will continue to be committed to your learning and development throughout your career with us. You will have the opportunity to gain Chartered status with your chosen professional institution, as well as the chance to pursue further study and training goals.
