Year 9’s experienced a day with Northern Rail as part of the school careers’ programme. The day started at Preston Station where they were given a tour of the station by Nicky Turnbull and then the journey began by boarding on the Northern Rail to Manchester Piccadilly. During their journey on the train, pupils discussed and learnt about the different job roles and career paths and thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the Northern Rail quiz.
They were then met by the HR staff from Northern Rail at Manchester Piccadilly, who talked about all the different job opportunities within the company. Pupils were overwhelmed with so many job prospects and apprenticeships Northern Rail have to offer.
The next stop was the Newton Heath depot where the pupils enjoyed the tour of the depot and were informed about the different job roles within various departments.
Many thanks to the staff at Northern Rail and Nicky Turnbull for arranging this valuable experience for our Year 9’s.
