Triple Bar - Nuclear Leadership

The Triple Bar Nuclear Leadership (TBNL) is a two-day programme targeted at:-

  • middle managers
  • supervisors or team-leaders seeking to move to the next level of management
  • graduates and/or completed apprentices, as part of their career development programmes

- ​who all work, or intend to work, within the nuclear industry or supply chain.  

It looks at what is different about supplying to the nuclear sector, and it applies whether that is for new build, supporting existing facilities or decommissioning activities. It will help delegates understand what is different about the leadership and management style expected to be able to confidently work in the nuclear supply chain, and will suggest tools and techniques that will help establish the right business culture.

“Thanks to the trainers for the course. It was very well delivered and very useful. It left me with many things to think about incorporating into my role. I will certainly be recommending that Atkins send other employees on this course."
Andy Fowler, Senior Mechanical Engineer, ATKINS

Learning Objectives

By the end of the TBNL programme delegates will;

  • Have a clearer understanding of the behaviours and traits expected of employees in a nuclear supply chain business.
  • Have experienced some of the problems caused by poor leadership and employees not demonstrating these traits.
  • Be able to take that knowledge and start to apply it to their  leadership role within their business.
