Will ‘HS2 college’ train 1,200 students every year?

The young apprentices at the National College for High Speed Rail [NCHSR] in Birmingham will train 1,200 students every single year, using cutting-edge technology and world-class teaching to get the qualifications and experience they need to build our future railway, according to a Birmingham Mail article ‘written by’ West Midlands mayor Andy Street and HS2 Minister Nusrat Ghani.

'The young apprentices at the National College for High Speed Rail in Birmingham will train 1,200 students every single year' (?)

But how would young apprentices be able to train students?

And are there plans to train 1,200 people every single year?

According to figures seen by the Beleben blog, NCHSR had just 69 learners enrolled in January 2018.

For the year 2018 / 2019, the target is 639 learners (apprentices plus ‘Cert HE’), and for the year 2019 / 2020, 852.

How cost-effective, or viable, is NCHSR?
