Upgrading and renewing the track on the world's oldest Underground network is an essential part of transforming the tube into the world class network the world's greatest city deserves, and you can be a part of it. Our Capital Programmes Directorate has an apprenticeship opportunity for individuals with the right attitude and aptitude to train to become our engineers and leaders of tomorrow.

What you'll be doing

The Intermediate (Level 2) and Advanced (Level 3) apprenticeship programme includes on and off the job training while working with professional and experienced engineers, project managers, commercial teams and our fully accredited and experienced external training provider.

Training & development

  • You'll gain all the essential safety and practical training competencies and licences you'll need throughout your career. The structured placement programme provides first hand experience of our deep tube and open section track and drainage renewal activities as well as an introduction to engineering principles, specifications, standards and contractual and commercial agreements.
  • During the first 18 months you'll work towards getting your NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Rail Engineering and Underpinning Knowledge. When you complete that, you'll have the opportunity to progress to the Advanced (level 3) Apprenticeship. This level leads to an NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Rail Engineering as well as academic studies leading to a diploma in engineering.
  • During the Advanced Apprenticeship you'll follow a further structured placement programme designed to provide you with additional skills in project management, project /construction engineering, surveying, track and signal design, etc. which builds upon the skills and knowledge acquired in the first 18 months.
  • Both schemes incorporate spending time with our training provider where you will complete your Technical Certificate and academic studies.
  • Completing the Advanced Apprenticeship means you'll have acquired the skills and knowledge to apply for registration as an engineering technician (EngTech) with the Engineering Council.
