North East Area Council

The North East Area Council prides itself on being an active part of the CIRO, with regular events, comprising of a mixture of guest lectures and outdoor visits. We have an exciting programme planned for the year ahead, we are keen to see events directly link into the modules being studied as part of the education courses offered by the IRO, which will help support students in their studies. If you are a student in our area, we would welcome you at our events, or if you wish to have a chat about your studies, please get in touch.

We also actively participate in the CIRO mentor programme and if this is of interest to you, please get in touch and we will set this up for you. Remember, it’s your institution, make sure you get the most out of it!

The best way to achieve an outstanding rail service across the North East is together. Joining the CIRO North East Area Council is a great way to make those connections, to expand our network of rail operators who can share their expertise and innovative ideas for our sector.
