National College for Advanced Transport and Infrastructure Relaunches

The University of Birmingham has relaunched the National College for Advanced Transport and Infrastructure (NCATI), following work with the UK Department for Education to secure a successful, sustainable and inclusive future for the college.

A special collaboration between higher and further education, the NCATI has now been incorporated into the wider University of Birmingham Group. It will produce the next generation of highly skilled professionals to lead the UK’s future rail, transport and infrastructure workforce, particularly helping to address sector skills gaps in the Midlands and the North.

Led by newly appointed Principal Ian Fitzpatrick, the relaunched NCATI will provide high quality education and training with a distinctive local offering that specialises in railway and transportation engineering at state-of-the-art campuses in Birmingham and Doncaster.

In addition, a hub and spoke model will see the NCATI collaborating with education partners, employers and industry bodies around the UK.

Apprenticeships will be a fundamental part of the curriculum going forward. Following a thorough application process, the college has been accepted on to the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers and is preparing for new apprentices to join the college in the coming months.
