 Is my organisation eligible? 

Our Provider network includes membership from independent providers, FE colleges, HE institutions and nuclear employers with a training department.  Provision covers all skills needed for the nuclear industry from highly technical skills to soft skills development.  There are a number of provider types within our network.

 Quality Assured (QA) Providers 
QA Providers are private providers and further education colleges equipped to deliver the qualifications and training courses required by industry.  Each provider has successfully completed NSAN’s rigorous application process, involving achieving high standards of attainment within the educational regulatory system, a written application and further examination by the NSAN Team and employers.

 Employer Nominated Providers 

Training providers who deliver courses required by industry at a sufficiently high level that they are recommended by nuclear employer members to become part of NSAN’s provider network.

 Higher Education Providers 
Includes our lead partners in the development of industry backed foundation degrees and also a growing number of establishments from across the UK keen to support NSAN’s HE agenda and to deliver key elements of the Certificate of Nuclear Professionalism. HE providers (institutes) are not required to go through a QA process or require letters of support as primary responsibility for ensuring academic standards and quality lie with that particular institute.

 How much does it cost? 
All members are required to pay an annual fee to NSAN.  This income is used to develop the skills solutions as identified by our members and to provide member support and engagement.  Provider costs vary depending on current provision for the nuclear industry.
