Routes into Rail has been working with video production company Cognitive to produce a series of videos with information about the rail industry and rail careers. These videos are aimed at students, graduates, people interested in apprenticeships, teachers and parents.

The videos are placed throughout the Routes into Rail website to reinforce information about rail careers and will be used across social media and Routes into Rail campaigns. They will also be useful for teachers to share with students who want to learn about rail, apprenticeship and graduate opportunities.
