Training & Development

Training and Development

Whichever job interests you, we will offer on-going support and development opportunities, giving you the training you need to carry out your job to the best of your potential.


East Midlands Trains offers exciting apprenticeship roles in the Engineering function. Our scheme is supported by Derby College and lasts three years, offering a day release system for training.

Continuing professional development

Development requirements are personal to you. But if you have a need for a qualification to do your job effectively we’ll do what we can to help you with this. For example, if you’re moving to a job needing up-to-date IT skills, we’ll help you get an NVQ in Microsoft Office packages. Or if you’re a professional looking for your next challenge with us, we may be able to help you with funding or release to study a management qualification.

Investors in People

East Midlands Trains is a business with Investors In People status. This scheme recognises organisations that have improved their performance and delivery through the investment in and development of employees. 

Our people deliver the best service possible for our passengers and are committed to making our journeys comfortable for both seasoned travellers and those new to rail.

To get Investors In People status we had to pass a rigorous assessment of face-to-face and telephone interviews that spanned several days. Under the spotlight were our performance review processes, leadership and everyday working culture.

Having Investors in People status helps us improve our business planning and management effectiveness and understand where we can make improvements
