On 14 January 2014, plans were unveiled for a new college to train the next generation of world class engineers to work on the construction of HS2.
A consultation was held with the purpose of gathering information about potential locations for the main site of the college. The information gathered through this consultation would then enable a decision to be taken.
The consultation opened on 7 March 2014 at 12:15am and closed on 30 April 2014 at 11:45pm.
It was held on the GOV.UK website and led by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS).

High Speed Two (HS2) presents both a major opportunity for economic growth in the UK and a significant challenge in terms of creating unprecedented demand for skills in rail engineering. BIS and HS2 Ltd are excited by the opportunity of meeting this challenge by developing the facilities that will support the highly skilled workforce of the future, trained in state of the art technology and techniques.
The new college will be an integral part of the Government’s strategy for delivering a national high speed rail network for Britain. It will be an elite institution, focused on designing and delivering the high level skills needed for high speed rail, and other major engineering projects of the future, with the college expected to open its doors to students in 2017.
