The college, as well as a similar centre in Birmingham, will train thousands of new engineers, who are needed to deliver billions of pounds worth of rail contracts over the coming decades, including the new HS2 high speed rail line.

Doncaster’s fast paced rail and engineering renaissance has stepped up a gear this year with over 10,000 people employed in the sector and firms having order books in excess of £1.7billion over the next five years. There is also strong interest from companies looking to locate to one of Britain’s most important railway centres.

I am delighted that our hard work to bring the new National High Speed Rail College to Doncaster has been a success and I would like to thank everyone who has been part of our bid, or supported it. Doncaster has always led the way in terms of cutting edge rail engineering and this decision confirms our position as the home of rail. It’s a great day for Doncaster. It will offer local people, including our school leavers, the chance to gain high level engineering skills leading to well-paid jobs that are in high demand.

– Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster
