Current proton and ion synchrotrons hold the record for both the maximum single particle energy and for the maximum total energy stored in the beam. These energies are orders of magnitude higher than the corresponding energies in electron/positron accelerators. Using the ultrarelativistic hadron beam to drive a linear accelerator it could be possible to accelerate electron beam in a single stage to a TeV-scale energy (such accelerated beam can be useful in experiments which do not require very high luminosity for example). The AWAKE experiment is currently under commissioning at CERN to test the concept of plasma-based proton driven acceleration using the 400 GeV proton beam from the Super Proton Synchrotron. General properties and challenges of different hadron beam driven acceleration schemes as well as the details of the AWAKE experiment will be presented.
