The main structure of the ASTONRail handbook follows the target groups we identified in the project, as this are:
Future students who want to start a career in rail and therefor are looking for suitable study courses: You will find your rail-related study course in the ASTONRail database and get information about career perspectives and job profiles
Students and graduates
who are looking for a job in the railway sector: You will get information about the needs of the industry and where to find a job
People in HEI and teachers
who want to implement approaches and learning methods in their railway course and programmes and/or who want to build up new rail-focused courses and programmes: You get information about teaching and learning methods for rail skills development in the ASTONRail methods catalogue
and get to know how to implement them in practice from the ASTONRail best practice examples.
who will enter the railway sector: You are also warmly very welcome in this handbook and in the railway sector. Information on studying can be found here
and information on where to find a job are here
We also collect information about the structure of Higher Education, especially in rail. Therefore we have a special section: EQF levels and the Rail Career Matrix
Finally, more information about the ASTONRail project and the produced outcome is collected on a few wiki pages.
However, this wiki lives from participation. It will only ever contain as much information and be as up-to-date as you as a user contribute to it. So, please, contribute! (What a wiki is and how it works is documented here. For syntax issues this site will help.)
