Prince's Trust - Get into Railways

Thameslink, in partnership with The Prince’s Trust, runs Get into Railways, a programme for young people from difficult backgrounds. 2019 marks the 5th anniversary of this special partnership.

The 18-30 year olds selected for the programme receive free four-week and two-day courses at a training centre on our network. Their time is split between the training centre and a two-week work placement at one of our stations.

The programme focuses on practical skills development and the chance to build a strong CV. The Prince's Trust helps young people become work- ready by developing their skills and confidence. Participants also get to experience a number of mock interviews with our staff.

Bianca Bhebhe, 18, from Bedford, said: “Being part of The Prince’s Trust programme has been life changing and really helped me to focus on what I want to achieve. From here I just want to progress even further and one day I’d like to become a train driver, and even work my way up to management.”

Corporate and social responsibility

We believe in doing business in a responsible way – serving our passengers and benefiting the communities around our stations.
