NSAN are currently busily arranging judging panels and reviewing applications for the 2016 search to find the nuclear industry stars of the future. The winners will be announced at the ninth annual UK Nuclear Skills Awards evening on the 16th March 2017. Nominations for the awards closed on the 28th October 2016.
There are so many people who are starting out in their careers with nuclear companies who have a massive impact on their departments/organisations, regularly ‘go the extra’ mile for their employers, over achieve and provide excellent role models to more recent entrants, and for the industry as a whole.
Companies have put forward their nominations in the following categories for their stars of the future.
- Business Support Apprentice of the Year
- Maintenance Apprentice of the Year
- Manufacturing Apprentice of the Year (inc. Design)
- Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) Apprentice of the Year
- Scientific / Technical Apprentice of the Year (inc. Radiation protection and environmental protection)
- FD/HND Student of the Year
- Science Graduate of the Year
- Engineering Graduate of the Year
- Post Graduate Student of the Year.
The selected finalists for all the categories will be invited to attend the high profile UK Nuclear Skills Awards dinner which will be held on the 16th March 2017 in Manchester. The Dinner is a collaborative event organised by the National Skills Academy Nuclear and Cogent Skills.
The UK Nuclear Skills Awards Dinner is a firm favourite on the nuclear event calendar and is expected to sell quickly. Early booking is encouraged via NSAN or Cogent.

“This is an event that is organised on behalf of industry. Following feedback from employers we have added a post graduate award, streamlined some of the apprenticeship and graduate award categories and introduced an award specifically for SMEs.
Every year the independent award panels have a very tough task ahead of them. I expect that this year will be another tall order for the panels, as we expect that the changes to the categories will encourage even more nominations for industry.
The UK Nuclear Skills Awards is the nuclear industry’s skills event of the year, and really highlights the nuclear professionals of the future.”
