We will soon be launching a training and development programme to help the community rail movement continue to grow and fulfil its potential.

Incorporating a range of training opportunities, workshops, tools and materials, the programme will be tuned in to the practical needs of community rail partnerships and groups. It will help the community rail movement to work effectively, connect with other community and third sector organisations, and deliver greater value within local communities.

We’ll be working across three broad, inter-connected themes:

Organisational development: Providing training and resources to support the effective development and delivery of community rail organisations and their priorities.
Skill pathways: Developing initiatives, support and resources to connect community rail with skills development opportunities, which may include work experience placements, accredited volunteering modules and apprenticeships.
Communities: Supporting community rail organisations to engage with their local community to deliver community benefit, widen opportunities and increase levels and diversity of volunteering and volunteers.
