Morson Vital Training was delighted to host the Girls Network, for the #careersontrack event where students from St Ambrose School visited our rail training facility in Salford.
The year 10 and 12 pupils from St Ambrose spent an afternoon at Morson Vital Training, gaining practical experience of rail safety and skills and exploring opportunities in engineering. The girls stepped inside the Morson/Vital safety unit and receive a safety briefing where various types of equipment and safety innovations were demonstrated. They then followed Training Support Manager, Andy Robinson, out onto the Vital training track in full PPE where they were briefed about the job roles and responsibilities that come working within the rail industry.
Andrew Robinson, Vital’s Training Support Manager was extremely pleased with the level of engagement he felt from the group:
“Hopefully we have achieved our goal of sparking some engineering interest in a new generation of young people.”
A presentation about what a career on track involves and an interactive Q&A was delivered by our Head of Vital Training, Matt Leavis and HR Business Partner, Lorraine Reece.
The ‘Careers on Track’ event was a great opportunity for the girls to understand and learn more about the career paths which are available to them in engineering sectors, specifically rail.
Positively some of the girls came away from the event considering apprenticeships in the engineering world. For many, the event ‘opened their eyes’ to engineering and for one pupil the event has spurred her on to realising her dream to become a construction engineer and encourage more women into the profession.
