Crossrail has committed to delivering at least 400 apprenticeships over the lifetime of the project, and already has over 280 apprentices working on the project at site offices and worksites across London.
Crossrail says the project is not just about delivering a world-class new railway, but also about leaving a lasting skills legacy for the industry.
"The apprentices we have working across the project today highlight the rewards of investing in high-quality skills training. We are determined to give young people a foot up and the opportunity to learn a trade on a unique project. We are passionate about leaving a legacy of a skilled workforce that will support the UK construction and engineering industries for decades to come," it said.
Crossrail is employing apprentices in a wide range of trades and professions from construction to accountancy, quantity surveying to business administration, and has additonally developed new apprenticeship frameworks in tunnelling and sprayed concrete operations.
