The National College for High Speed Rail has been established to help provide the skills and qualifications required by High Speed 2 (HS2) and the modern rail industry as a whole. The college offers a range of qualifications, particularly at Level 4 and above, such as apprenticeships, certificates in higher education and foundation degrees via full time and part time delivery. There is no mandatory requirement for any student to be employed by HS2 once they have obtained their qualification. Qualifications and skills gained by students allow them to work for a wide range of organisations in the rail sector.
