Leadership pledge


To succeed, and deliver the next generation of talented workers for your business, we also need your support. We are asking for as many employer partners as possible to sign up to the leadership pledge, outlined here:


“We will work with the college management team to support the National College for High Speed Rail in one or more of the following ways:

  • Commit to using the college as a training provider of choice for staff across apprenticeships, HTC’s and professional development courses
  • Provide equipment or financial support for the college’s learning environments so that students have access to up-to-date technology
  • Provide work placements and mentoring support to learners at the college
  • Recruit graduates from the college to grow our workforce
  • Provide our staff to act as technical advisors to contribute to the development of the curriculum
  • Act as a spoke centre to the college by providing facilities and expert staff to deliver learning on our site
  • Provide our staff to act as expert advisors to deliver learning, or to train college staff
  • Send apprentices to the college, to contribute to the student intake

In return, we will benefit from a technically trained, highly-skilled workforce that has the ability to create, operate and maintain the next generation of rail and engineering infrastructure.”

This is our standard leadership pledge, but there is no one-size-fits-all approach to how we are developing the college. If you’d like to be involved, please do get in touch with us!
