Training for the Future is a rail industry skills program to prepare Australians to deliver an unprecedented amount of work on the Melbourne rail network over the next ten years and beyond.
This program will result in a new generation of rail talent for Victoria. It will provide opportunities to re-skill people with relevant experience from industries in decline, as well as training people from disadvantaged communities.
The key elements of Training for the Future include:
- industry capability
- skills development
- diversity and social inclusion opportunities.
This initiative is led by the Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP), with input from:
- Metro Trains Melbourne
- Public Transport Victoria
- Transport for Victoria
- Rail Projects Victoria
- Yarra Trams
There is currently a large pipeline of work on major rail projects for Melbourne, including the removal of 75 level crossings, extension of rail to Mernda, and the Melbourne Metro Rail Project.
