Future Rail Skills Forum - Highlights

21 Sep 2023

With the number of workers in specialised digital rail occupations expected to increase 83% by 2027, and 70,000 extra workers needed over the next decade to build and run $155 billion of new infrastructure projects, the modernisation of Australia’s rail network is feeling the impact of the global talent crunch.

High-level leaders from education and rail sectors, governments and unions came together to tackle this challenge at the first Future Rail Skills Forum hosted by the National Rail skills Hub and the Australasian Railway Association.

Highlights from the day were captured on video and in Future Rail Skills Forum report.
