Welcome to VERCIDA website.Skip to main content
We have a long established engineering apprenticeship programme based at our Temple Mills Depot in Stratford,
Our apprentices are on a 4-year course which includes working alongside our engineers on our mixed fleet of high-speed trains as well as attending college one day a week. Our apprentices are great ambassadors for Eurostar and host our work experience students as well as young people from Leigh University Technical College (UTC). Leigh UTC is based in Dartford and they specialise in teaching 14 to 19 year olds in engineering and computer science.
Over 60 young people have successfully completed the Eurostar apprenticeship programme. Some have stayed with Eurostar and others have forged successful careers in other parts of the industry. Other apprentices have both completed the engineering apprenticeship and have then gone to university to take a degree in engineering.
n September 2017 we introduced a new trainee manager graduate programme. This programme involves a series of six-month placements over two years, where graduates get to see first-hand the full spectrum of how we work. These areas of focus include customer service, project management, business services and a placement at our train depot.
We are also looking to build on the success of both these programmes by introducing apprenticeships in customer service and our head office functions.
