Return of LNER’s Tomorrow’s Talent

London North Eastern Railway (LNER) is offering young people an inspirational insight into the career opportunities available within the rail industry. 

Tomorrow’s Talent, LNER’s popular online work experience programme returns for a fourth time from 13 February 2023. Teenagers wishing to take part have a week remaining to apply for the free course which not only showcases the job opportunities available in rail, but also enhances their skill set with a focus on creativity, problem solving, leadership and teamwork. Students complete several online modules covering a variety of topics such as the increasing use of digital and innovative technology and the importance of sustainability. 

To date, more than 500 teenagers living within ten miles of the LNER route have taken part in the programme which is open to 14-18-year-olds in Years 10-13 in England or S3-S6 in Scotland.  


David Horne, Managing Director at LNER, said: “At LNER we believe that inspiring the talent of tomorrow, the future generation of rail workers, is vital. We are proud to be able to provide this unique insight into the fantastic variety of careers our industry has to offer where young people across our route are given the opportunity to engage with and hear from experts in a wide range of fields. My own railway career started with a work experience week. Tomorrow’s Talent is a brilliant way of showcasing the roles rail has to offer.” 

Of those who attended the online insight sessions, 86 per cent said they would recommend the programme to a friend, while 86 per cent also said they felt more confident about speaking to professionals following the sessions, an increase of 21 per cent from beforehand. 

The application window for Tomorrow’s Talent is open until 3 February 2023. Anyone interested in attending the programme is encouraged to visit where they can find further information and submit their application.
