In welcoming the £763 million of fresh funding to boost nuclear skills and jobs (link), Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, said:

“This is a very welcome investment which will help ensure we have enough people with the right skills to ramp up nuclear capacity to the levels needed for energy security. It is a great opportunity for the Government and industry to work together to attract workers into an exciting and cutting-edge sector that will play a vital role in the UK’s journey to net zero.

“Meeting the UK’s ambitious nuclear targets will require a huge ramp up in all parts of the workforce from engineering to construction so it is important we attract and train the next generation of nuclear workers so that we keep pace with other countries that are doing the same. The industry, which is match-funding the Government’s investment, stands ready to do all it can to support in that endeavour.”
