About the employer

With plans well underway for the UK’s second high speed rail line, the industry is already beginning to forge new paths, requiring new skills and employees from a wider range of backgrounds than ever before. Our priority is to ensure that we lead this change, attracting as diverse a group of people as possible to the college, and redefining common perceptions of what engineering and the rail sector is all about. The college will open doors for new learners, for the existing workforce, for our industry partners, for career changers and for other education providers, as we build a workforce prepared to lead the new era of rail travel in the UK and overseas. We’re working with employers to develop the courses we teach, so college leavers will qualify with the specific skills required in their chosen field. They’ll be taught through a mixture of classroom learning and real-world work experience, giving them the chance to work on real projects and with potential future colleagues as they train. We have a rare and unique opportunity to ensure high speed rail in this country leaves a carefully considered human legacy as well as a physical one.
