Celebrating Ryan Simpson's Achievement: A Success Story

We are delighted to share the inspiring story of Ryan Simpson, who has recently been honoured with the Student of the Year and Outstanding Student of the Year awards.

A Journey of Transformation

Ryan began his journey in April 2023, enrolling in a Level 2 Railway Engineering course at Nelson and Colne College via Changing Lives. His commitment to the course was evident from the start, and his passion for railway engineering quickly became apparent. Upon completing the course, Ryan joined McGinley Support Services, where he was given the opportunity to hone his skills further.

From Classroom to the Track

Ryan's first assignment was at Chinley, where he thrived as a trackman. His exceptional performance and rapid progression are testaments to his hard work and the support he received from his colleagues and mentors. It is this combination of personal dedication and professional guidance that has enabled him to excel.

Achieving His Dreams

Ryan's ultimate goal was to work with Network Rail (NWR), a dream that he has now realised. His journey from a student to a respected professional in the railway industry underscores the importance of hands-on experience and robust support for individuals aspiring to build a career in this vital sector.
