NuGen welcomes national nuclear skills review

NuGen has welcomed the first annual review of the Nuclear Energy Skills Alliance.

The alliance is tasked with ensuring the UK civil nuclear industry and its supply chain are supported by a workforce with the skills, capability and capacity to successfully deliver the nuclear new build programme. The review highlights the progress the Skills Alliance has made towards this mission.

The Nuclear Energy Skills Alliance is a collaboration between the skills bodies who have the specialist knowledge, skills and capability to support the nuclear industry. The Alliance members are: - Department for Business Innovation & Skills, CITB, Cogent, Department of Energy & Climate Change, Engineering Construction Industry Training Board, The University of Manchester's Dalton Nuclear Institute, The National Skills Academy Nuclear, Semta and Welsh Government.

Jean Llewellyn OBE, Chair of The Nuclear Energy Skills Alliance said: "The Skills Alliance was set up to ensure a co-ordinated approach to the skills requirements of the nuclear industry. By working together we can ensure we simplify the skills agenda, provide transparency and avoid duplication of effort. By communicating the skills needs of the nuclear industry to Government we can ensure that financial and policy resources are targeted and the nuclear new build programme remains a priority for government project and programme funding."

NuGen is a member of the National Skills Academy, Nuclear.
