The next generation of nuclear professionals have completed their degree apprenticeships
Sellafield Ltd’s engineering design apprentices are celebrating the completion of their apprenticeships and BEng (hons) degrees at Warrington’s University Technical College.
The former design apprentices have studied a number of disciplines including civil, structural and architectural, control, electrical and instrumentation and mechanical and have now taken up full time roles with the company.
This cohort were part of Sellafield Ltd’s programme that recruited 200 apprentices across 18 different schemes last year.
John Patterson, head of engineering design resources and development at Sellafield Ltd, said: “The training scheme is excellent grounding for our new breed of nuclear workers.
“These graduates will play a big part in continuing the crucial work of cleaning up the country’s highest nuclear hazards.”
Nick Mars, CE&I graduate engineer at Sellafield Ltd, added: “I have no doubt that I have been given unrivalled opportunities for technical, academic and personal development during my apprenticeship that I’d consider invaluable for any young person starting their career in engineering.”
