The National College for Advanced Transport & Infrastructure (NCATI) has been established to provide the higher-level skills needed to transform the UK rail and transport infrastructure network.

 

The College opened in September 2017 as the National College for High Speed Rail (NCHSR) on state-of-the-art campuses in Birmingham and Doncaster. In August 2019, the College changed its name to reflect the growing demand across the UK transport infrastructure industry.

 

The College is dedicated to providing the higher-level training required to create HS2, Northern Powerhouse Rail and other rail projects, as well as supporting the skills demand from employers who are facing skills challenges such as digitalisation of the railway and an ageing workforce

Through a combination of classroom teaching and real work experience, apprenticeships and short courses, the College provides technical and professional courses, using the very latest industry technology, to a diverse range of learners that are starting a career in the industry, are looking to switch careers, or are part of the existing workforce.
