Promoting Nuclear Professionalism

Nuclear companies commit to maintaining professional standards and align their operations, policies and practices, staff development activities and management approach to professional standards.

Part of the Skills Academy’s National Nuclear Gateway Project is building a close collaboration between the National Skills Academy Nuclear, the lead skills body for the industry and the Nuclear Institute, the professional body for nuclear professional practice across all disciplines and roles within the UK nuclear sector.

Through this collaboration a common professional standard known as the Nuclear Delta will be applied to both Nuclear Institute professional body membership and to joint NI and NSA Nuclear accreditation of training and professional development programmes, including apprenticeships.

The Nuclear Delta is specified and updated by leading nuclear professionals. It is widely adopted as the standard of nuclear professional practice in the areas of safety culture, nuclear safety, nuclear security and personal behavioural safety.

The Nuclear Delta is maintained independently by the Nuclear Institute, to recognise the high standards demanded of nuclear professionals across the whole of the sector.
