Our vision:

Pioneering technical excellence.

We want to produce a new generation of highly-skilled professionals to lead Britain’s future high speed rail workforce.
The National College for Advanced Transport & Infrastructure (NCATI) has been set up to provide training and work experience to learners aged 18 and above in all aspects of what makes a modern railway. That’s not just engineering and wearing hard hats anymore either, we’re talking about creating great passenger experiences, innovation and design as well. We want to create a new generation of employees, from loads of different backgrounds and with the skills to take on any challenge, to help the rail industry move forwards.
We’re going to do this by focusing on some key areas – on inclusion, on working in partnerships, in aiming for excellence, by innovating and challenging the norm, and by making sure everyone is healthy, safe and supported at all times.
Whether you’re a new student or already part of the industry, there are countless opportunities to shape the future of our railways.

Our Values:


We will embed safety into our everyday thinking and practices to ensure the continued health and wellbeing of our students, staff and partners.


We will develop new approaches to training delivery, have courage to innovate and challenge the norm to create long-lasting positive change.


We will create an inclusive and exciting environment that demonstrates what the future of rail will look like, attracting a broad and diverse audience.


We will establish and value sustained partnerships, committed to productive and progressive ways of working together to the benefit of our learners and stakeholders.


We will deliver the best in all we do, raise industry standards of technical skills training and demonstrate excellence in all that we deliver.
