National college for skills

The Government intends to work with the High Value Manufacturing Catapult and with the EEF, the manufacturers' organisation, to establish a National College for Advanced Manufacturing that will identify the needs of industry and develop training provision to meet those needs. This will be based on autonomous institutions working together under the umbrella of a common National College framework.

The National College for Advanced Manufacturing is part of a new wave of employer-led National Colleges to help the UK develop world-class practical skills with other colleges focusing on digital skills, nuclear, high speed rail, onshore oil and gas, and wind energy. Up to £80 million of capital funding will be matched by employers over 2015-16 and 2016-17 – with a potential total investment of £160 million by 2017.
