Train Drivers Academy

There are currently over 16,000 drivers in Britain and as part of an industry pledge to make our railway more representative to the communities and people we serve, the Train Drivers Academy aims to modernise training and increase the  diversity in train drivers.
Currently governed by its member representatives, the Train Drivers Academy was established in April 2019 on the request of the Department of Transport. It is steered and managed by the Rail Delivery Group. It is the official government scheme centred around improving the management of training and recruitment for train drivers. The Train Drivers Academy is not a physical establishment but rather a cloud-based and virtual centre for train driver training.
