The National College for High Speed Rail has officially opened its doors.
Situated on Lister Street in Birmingham, the college hopes to fill a skills shortage of 69,000 engineers as plans for HS2 get underway.
It's one of five colleges across the country that has been created by the government, offering the chance to study a range of courses taught by industry specialists.
It's hoped a minimum of 50% of pupils will be apprentices, and staff are actively encouraging young people - especially women - to get involved.
CEO Clair Mowbray said:
The college is "dedicated to the future of the UK's railway industry" and combines classroom learning with hands-on experience for pupils over 18 years of age.
It's the largest of the five national colleges and is at the heart of the new HS2 line.
Work on HS2 is expected to begin next year, connecting London to Birmingham, the East Midlands and the North.
