Parents & Teachers

What is transport and infrastructure?
Transport and infrastructure refers to the framework that supports our transport systems. This includes roads, railways, ports and airports.
National and local governments are responsible for managing our transport and infrastructure, and the UK government is currently investing billions of pounds in its redevelopment.
As a college, we are passionate about training up the next generation of skilled workers needed to modernise our roads, railways, and infrastructure. Take a listen as our Principal Ian Fitzpatrick shares what we do here at NCATI:

What's important to us at NCATI?

Pioneering Technical Excellence

Our learners are an integral part of our vision to provide a new generation of highly-skilled professionals to lead Britain’s future workforce in rail and transport infrastructure.

We’re making this a reality implementing our values of Safety, Pioneering, Inclusivity, Collaboration and Excellence throughout the College. Find out more in our Vision & Values section.

As a learner and future alumni of the National College for Advanced Transport & Infrastructure you will benefit from our excellent links to employers and industry leaders in the transport and infrastructure sectors. Those same industry leaders who have signed our Leadership Pledge act as industry mentors, guest lecturers and donate state-of-the-art equipment so learners can benefit from practical learning.

Activities and Guidance

The College recognises the importance of enrichment activities. We actively encourage learners to contribute to the wider communities in which they live and work through engagement events and volunteering. We offer our learners the opportunity to engage with our industry partners through work experience and industry events and support them to organise and attend social clubs and activities.

We are pleased to offer individual and impartial information, advice and guidance for all our learners as part of our commitment to their personal and professional development.

A Safe Learning Environment

We believe in providing and maintaining an inclusive environment for all learners, staff and visitors. Everyone in the College community is given a fair chance at achieving their full potential in a welcoming, respectful and safe environment.

All our staff are trained in safeguarding and PREVENT, and our promotion of British Values is embedded throughout the curriculum. Healthy debate and discussion around topical issues through enrichment themes such as mental health and wellbeing, online safety and financial safety are encouraged.

We offer confidential, personalised support to address any concerns our learners may have which is underpinned by our Safeguarding Policy and comprehensive systems and procedures.

If you are studying at NCATI and require support or are worried about someone at College, please contact our Safeguarding Team on 07471 353426 or email [email protected].

Depending on the course and modules undertaken, learners may be required to take part in lessons in the workshop areas and will be required to wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).

Our Commitment to British Values & PREVENT Duty

The National College for Advanced Transport & Infrastructure community is dedicated to upholding the British Values of Democracy, Rule of law, Individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs. This is achieved through enrichment events and external speaker checks.

All staff undergo regular training in order to identify any risk factors around radicalisation and to prevent people being drawn into terrorism.
