The Nuclear Workforce Assessment

The current Nuclear Energy skills Alliance (NESA) report summarises the best Labour Market Intelligence (LMI) currently available for the nuclear industry. For the existing estate (both Civil and Defence) updated programmes available in 2015 have been used to provide refreshed data. Nuclear New build has clearly advanced in terms of capital investment and the establishment and growth of project teams. However, it has not been possible at the time of writing to either update the schedule for the construction of new civil generation capacity, or to refine reactor workforce models beyond the generic. Nevertheless, the nuclear workforce model provides a good indication of the national skills challenge, for the industry to inform strategic skills fora.
