The Training Programme:
Years One and Two: Based at the National College for Nuclear Southern Hub, Somerset, you’ll have access to state-of-the-art nuclear training facilities including: a virtual reality environment; a reactor simulator; computer-equipped training rooms; recreation and collaboration spaces; sports facilities and student accommodation. It’s here that you’ll get your introduction to engineering and develop those key skills. Towards the end of Year 1 you will be streamed into a specific discipline – Mechanical, Electrical or Control and Instrumentation.
Years Three and Four: You’ll be based at our Torness power station in Dunbar. Here, you’ll work alongside and learn from fully qualified professionals, developing your knowledge and skills at the same time as completing your academic and vocational qualifications.
You’ll also have the support from a full time Station Apprentice Coordinator to offer guidance whilst you learn about working on a power station.
Upon completion of your apprenticeship, you’ll be awarded a Maintenance and Operations Engineering Technician Apprenticeship Certificate. By this point, you’ll also have gained a BTEC Level 3 as well as an excellent selection of practical skills. It’s everything you need to start your career and, if you excel, there may also be the option to progress onto further education such as a HNC.
