Gibb engineers help to fight rail skill shortages

CONSULTANT GIBB is sending its top engineers to lecture at Leeds University in an attempt to ease skills shortages in the rail sector.

Engineers from Gibb's York office will teach on rail topics - a module option on Leeds' civil engineering courses, due to start next year.

The firm acted after realising that graduates lacked knowledge of the rail industry. Gibb's offer to provide lecturers was warmly welcomed by the university.

Leeds' civil engineering department has been trying to forge better links with local civils firms for a while. It has employed staff from the industry to help tailor courses to their needs.
