The National College for High Speed Rail is the largest of five national employer-led colleges created by the Government to help British students develop world class skills.
The college is a state-of-the-art training facility built on two new campuses in Birmingham and Doncaster. It opened its doors to students in autumn to provide the training for the high-tech engineers, managers, designers, apprentices and advanced manufacturing talent needed for the UK’s High Speed Rail industry, as well as other major British infrastructure schemes.
The colleges which cost £40m combined have been funded by The UK Government, The Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, The Department for Education, The Department for Transport, The Skills Funding Agency, HS2, Birmingham City Council, Doncaster Council, Greater Birmingham & Solihull LEP, Sheffield City Region LEP, West Midlands Combined Authority and The Midlands Engine.
