Education Secretary Justine Greening helped to launch the new National College for High Speed Rail (NCHSR) in Doncaster this week.

The college is the largest of five new national colleges created by the government to ensure young people can learn “world-class” technical skills such as engineering, design, planning, manufacturing and construction.

Commenting on the launch, Greening said: “It has been great to attend the official launch of the NCHSR. It is part of how we are steadily transforming technical education in this country, training up a new generation of skilled young people and the existing workforce so that British business has the skills it needs and people have the opportunities they want – a win-win for everyone.

“We can only do this in partnership with employers – the NCHSR is just one great example of this. The impressive new building and training facilities are at the forefront of our ambitions to create a world class system of technical education.

“Doncaster is also one of the 12 Opportunity Areas that will benefit from a share of £72 million to raise attainment and aspirations. NCHSR is part of this work, making sure Doncaster’s local talent gets the opportunity to fulfil its potential and ensuring a prosperous future for the UK.”
