OSL Global’s Support For Crewe Engineering & Design UTC



About OSL Global


OSL Global provides rail signalling and multidisciplinary engineering, technical and project delivery support to clients in the UK and internationally. With extensive experience in a broad range of services and solutions, OSL believe that young people have an enormous amount to gain from having access to a high-quality, engineering-based education.


Why Crewe Engineering & Design UTC Is Important


The aim of the UTC is to develop outstanding employable young people to become the next generation of highly skilled technicians and engineers. OSL will also provide a range of bespoke apprenticeship schemes to assist students wishing to have a future in business systems and human resources. It is hoped that this blend of empathetic engineering will encourage a more balanced interest in both male and female students.


How OSL Will Support The UTC

In support of the UTC, OSL will provide the opportunity for students to work alongside experts in the industry and gain first hand experience. In addition to mentoring and training, OSL can also accommodate UTC students in their new independent training facility, the Railway Exchange Training Academy (RĒTA).

The idea of RĒTA is to develop traditional skills whilst offering training in new technologies to support a more digital railway, that will bring with it increased connectivity, investment and economic balance. By combining skills that have existed for 150 years, the aim of the academy is to provide young professionals of the future with a holistic training focus that will encourage natural progression routes into the rail industry.


OSL’s support is motivated by the need to create an academic center that will encourage young people to reach their full potential, demonstrate positive attitudes to work and life and foster intellectual curiosity for application in further study or the rapidly changing world of work.


Potential OSL Careers


From Civil Engineering to Signalling – many different career possibilities are available, fuelled by the fast growth of the Rail industry. New technologies have also created a demand for enthusiastic young people with new ideas to meet the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.


An Investment For The Future

The Crewe Engineering and Design UTC campus is an investment for the future. OSL advocate creativity, so the opportunity to encourage young people to approach engineering and its associated subjects in a new and innovative way, is a chance we really could not and did not want to miss out on. By combining global business expertise with university academic rigor, OSL aim to provide an educational experience that is engaging, aspirational and attentive to the students personal strengths.
