A new plan aims to ensure there will be enough nuclear workers to achieve the sector’s goals going forward. The Nuclear Skills Strategic Plan (NSSP) outlines a series of steps to make sure the UK’s nuclear workforce will be large and skilled enough to cope with increased activity. It follows the UK Government, France’s EDF and China’s CGN signing the final deal for the construction of Hinkley Point C in Somerset earlier this year. The plan has been launched by the Nuclear Skills Strategy Group (NSSG), an industry-led consortium of businesses, government and trade unions and has been welcomed by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA). The 19 actions that form the plan include apprentice training, bursary schemes and other skill-building initiatives.
