1.3 hectares at Ashted Lock on Birmingham Science Park is to be cleared for the PR-driven ‘HS2 College’, “with business leaders promising a skills boost delivering hundreds of thousands of jobs”.

[‘Giant Birmingham site for HS2 College development’, Graeme Brown, the Birmingham Post, Oct 13, 2014]

[…] Andrew Cleaves, board director of Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) responsible for transport said he expected construction work to begin before next summer.

Consultations have begun with companies currently on the land, which is largely vacant, to clear it in time for work to take place.
Mr Cleaves said the college would be central to a wealth of vocations outside the rail sector.

He said: “These are not just railway-specific skills, they are things useful to a huge range of industries. Probably half of all people trained there will end up doing other jobs – signalling skills are similar to telecoms, rail construction skills are similar to civil engineering.”
