Liz backs rail apprenticeships


Greenacres in Mowmacre is a fantastic development at the end of the Great Central Railway. Backed by the Leicester City Council, Greenacres has workspaces for companies, a skills training centre and a family restaurant called ‘The Platform’.

I met Jon Ord, Director of the Enable Rail Academy, which has just taken on a 12 month lease at Greenacres in order to offer training and apprenticeships for young people going into the rail industry.  Greenacres is a brilliant development in a lovely setting, which I’d really encourage you to visit.
