The High Speed Rail Group exisits to promote the economic, social and environmental benefits of a HSR network in the UK, and we continue to make the case for the rail and infrastructure sector as high-quality places to work – by promoting best practice on employment, diversity, sustainability and wellbeing.

We have established the High Speed Rail Apprentice Network – made up of apprentices from across our member companies – with two broad aims:

  1. To connect apprentices from across HS2 and its contractors, and the wider HSR industry – providing apprentices with opportunities for networking, meeting other apprentices and sharing experiences and best practice.
  2. To provide HSRG with a network of young people working in the sector who can (with the appropriate support) speak on behalf of the group, provide content for our communications channels, and generally advocate for a younger audience in the sector.

The Network leads on the Podcast Series – High Speed Tales – with apprentices speaking informally to people connected to high speed rail.
