Consultation on a proposal to transform NCATI through an innovative collaboration with the University of Birmingham


The National College for Advanced Transport & Infrastructure is seeking views on its proposal which will enable the training of a new generation of highly skilled professionals to lead Britain’s future rail, transport and infrastructure workforce to continue.


The proposed collaboration will enable the development of high-quality education and training to current and new learners; will allow the recruitment of apprentices to resume once the new College has received its place on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (and via the University’s registration in the meantime); and will enable capacity to be increased to deliver the skills required by the sector at a national level. It is also expected to enable financial sustainability to be achieved by working with, and growing provision in, the rail, transport and infrastructure sectors.

The vision for the future institution is for it to meet the shortfall in skills across all levels, but with a particular emphasis on higher-level technical skills in key growth sectors that support the delivery of critical infrastructure projects.
