Programme Structure

Target audience
  • High-potential managers with daily responsibilities in the administration, operation or maintenance of a public transport network.
  • Newcomers in the public transport sector or transport professionals looking to have a broader and international insight into the sector.
  • Applicants are persons eager to learn from others but also to share their knowledge and experience. Networking is a key aspect of this course.

UITP is offering E-Learning sessions in the form of Virtual Class Rooms to ensure a closer link between participants and with UITP over the whole course length. We are offering, as a complement to the three classroom sessions: 

  • A virtual introductory session in small groups before the first module to kick-off the training, ask questions, make a mutual presentation, and discuss participants’ expectations. This will also help UITP to better understand the profile and expectations of participants and facilitate trainers to meet these needs.
  • Two customised virtual classroom sessions between the three modules and delivered by a transport expert. The topic of these sessions is chosen by participants. 
All sessions will last approximately one hour and will be customized to adapt to time zones and participant’s availability. 
 
Participants recommend this programme
 
"Expand your vision and concrete possibilities fulfilling your experience in P.T. and increase the best practices for your company in a very friendly and constructive environment"
Stefano Vallani, ATV Verona, Italy
 
"It is a rare opportunity to work closely with a network of transport professionals from around the world and to have time to substantively discuss topics as wide-ranging as operations, policy, finance, public relations and human resources. The program was excellent in that it provided a forum for exchange of information and practices in both formal and informal contexts"
Sally Librera, MTA New York City Transit, USA
 
"This course gives an overview of the main topics relevant to PT professionals in 3 modules and in different locatins. This is a great opportunity to build an international network of PT professionals."
Stephane Kodeck, STIB Brussels, Belgium

At the heart of the United Kingdom, Birmingham is a thriving, vibrant and diverse city, with a history of welcoming people from across the world. This is reflected in the truly international culture and outlook of the second city.
With a population of almost 1.1 million, Birmingham is famous for a rich tradition of manufacturing, particularly the automotive and aircraft industries and at the time Great Britain was known as the ‘Workshop of the World’, it was referred to as the ‘City of a Thousand Trades’. That industrial heritage has made the city what it is today and this can be seen in parts of Birmingham  where the past has been brought back to life, for instance in the entertainment areas of Broad Street and Brindley Place where the network of canals has been transformed with waterside bars, restaurants and nightclubs. It is even believed that Birmingham has more canals than Venice!
 
Birmingham is the multimodal hub of the UK’s transport system and its main train station, New Street, is currently undergoing a £600 million redevelopment, opening in September 2015.
Birmingham is the focal point for HS2, a national high speed rail network which would see 54,000 people a day travelling to two of the city’s stations - one near Moor Street station transporting people to London in under 50 minutes, the other near Birmingham Airport providing passengers with a 38 minute rail link to the capital. The Midland Metro tram system is also being extended into the heart of Birmingham City Centre as part of a £128 million project which will see brand new trams link to New Street station, with further expansion plans already well underway. Outside London’s regulated public transport operations, the rest of the UK – including Birmingham – works on a deregulated model. With one of the busiest bus networks in the UK, this has meant that Centro has developed powerful relationships with private sector bus operators. This has driven up standards, improved punctuality and seen the introduction of some of the most environmentally- advanced vehicles.
