In 2013, the Government, in partnership with industry, published the Nuclear Industrial Strategy (NIS). The NIS identified priority areas where Government and industry can work together. It set the strategic direction for collaborative action on skills and initiated the work of the Nuclear Industry Council (NIC). Since then the nuclear landscape has changed. At the same time, the NIC’s work on skills has clarified the skill challenges in the sector.
The Sustaining our nuclear skills report provides an opportunity to assess the current skills provision across the nuclear sector, to highlight the significant progress made over recent years in delivering a world-class nuclear workforce for the future, but also to consider the challenges we still face in realising that vision.
