Transport for Wales

Keeping Wales on the move through a sustainable train network has been the driving force behind a pioneering apprenticeship programme created by Transport for Wales (TfW).

The not-for-profit company has embraced work-based learning by recruiting hundreds of apprentices to improve performance and long-term sustainability.

They welcomed their first cohort in 2019, but by 2021 the company had introduced a UK-first programme for trainee train drivers that was designed in collaboration with the awarding body, EAL and in partnership with Coleg y Cymoedd.

The programme, delivered with ALS, has employed 189 apprentices from diverse backgrounds across 12 areas of the business.
