No longer is this just engineering and wearing hard hats, they’re looking at creating great passenger experiences, innovation, digital design, communications, project management and leadership as well.
Driving the vision
NCATI want to create and enable the next generation of employees for the new era of rail travel and modernisation of the existing rail network, drawn from lots of different backgrounds and with the skills to take on any challenge.
The College is fully kitted out with the very latest equipment – trains, carriages, track and digital systems, to name a few – but they are always wanting to be pushing the college forward with advancements in technology that not only makes a difference to them and their systems, but also to the students that study there. That’s when they turned to Phoenix.
After a robust procurement process, NCATI chose Phoenix because they showed commitment to understanding the needs of the college and understood the direction of travel that the college were going in. Daryl Unitt, Head of Information Technology, National College for Advanced Transport & Infrastructure, said, “They had great relations with Microsoft, and they gave us the confidence that we knew that we could have a long-term relationship with them.”
