To make every journey better for our passengers, we all need to be the best we can be to provide a world class service. So as well as focusing on future opportunities, we also want to bring out the best in you and your teams.

By providing bespoke initiatives, we offer you the opportunity to brush up on management skills, technical training and personal development. Our new Career and Development website will offer you a broader range of learning opportunities from online courses to video seminars.

These programmes include:

  • Inspirational Leadership
  • Thought Leadership

  • Impactful Leadership
  • Let’s Go, Duke of Edinburgh
