What will the apprentice be doing?

Spend four years with our expert team as part of our brand-new Nuclear Skills Academy and you'll gain the sort of practical knowledge you simply can't develop in the classroom. You'll gain a firm foundation in engineering principles and experience the full breadth of nuclear engineering as you take on a variety of placements across the engineering lifecycle and in different parts of the business.

This will include product and system design, testing, manufacture, and in-service support in a mix of day to day and project work. As well as getting on-the-job training on real-life projects, you'll also study a HNC in Engineering. All of these experiences will equip you to complete your apprenticeship as an engineering technician with a huge range of opportunities ahead of you.

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

You'll join us in our Defence Submarines business, helping keep the UK safe, as for over 60 years we have provided the power for the UK Royal Navy's nuclear submarine fleet. Nuclear power is incredible - just one spoonful of uranium is all it takes to power a fully-submerged submarine on a full circumnavigation of the world and the entire fleet can operate for over 20 years without needing to be refuelled thanks to our revolutionary technology. And it doesn't end there. We're leading a revolution in nuclear power that is already seeing us develop this technology for many other uses, from unmanned underwater vehicles, to microreactors and synthetic fuel, to even exploring space. All while reducing harm to our own planet. It's an amazing time to join us.

You'll gain a HNC in Engineering on the programme.
