The National College for High Speed Rail is a brand new incorporated FE College that is being established to train the next generation of the rail workforce. Covering the breadth of the rail industry from design to people experience, construction, maintenance and operations, the College will train learners from the age of 18 in Higher Apprenticeships and higher education programmes. Learners who have attended the National College will gain skills that enable UK employers to support the development and running of HS2 and future high speed rail projects at home and around the world.
The college’s vision is to pioneer technical excellence, setting new standards for collaboration and diversity in what will be a major growth industry for the UK in future years. We opened to students in September 2017, with two main hub sites in Birmingham and Doncaster and a network of ‘spokes’ via partner arrangements across the UK. We are now seeking a Employer Engagement Manager.
The successful post holder will have the responsibility of managing a team of Employer Relationship Officers and a caseload of apprentices who may be based anywhere in the UK. They will also develop a professional and supportive relationship with apprentices and their employer link. Furthermore ensure that the employer is supported so that the apprentice achieves their learning and career objectives and the employer feels confident in their role to support learners.
The National College for High Speed Rail is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.We particularly welcome applications from under represented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.
