NSSG at NIA Nuclear New Build – Energy White Paper promises opportunity

Nuclear Skills Lead Beccy Pleasant presented the “People Theme” update as part of a panel session on the Nuclear Sector Deal at NIA NNB2019 which took place in June.

Beccy said: “sitting on a panel with the theme owners of the other aspects the Nuclear Sector deal, it was great to see how much progress we have made over the last year. 

There was particular interest in what we are doing to engage younger people in our agenda, and questions about the potential impact of Brexit on skills.

“As usual it was a well-attended conference, with excellent speakers from across a range of backgrounds.   For me the key take-away was the opportunity presented by the forthcoming Energy White paper, to both set out the commitment to nuclear (large and small scale) and what it can deliver in terms of energy security and combatting climate change.”
