The Nuclear Skills Strategy Group (NSSG), consists of the Government and organisations who have both the plans and expenditure which drive the major developments in the sector.  It represents both the civil and defence nuclear sectors and is accountable for developing a nuclear skills strategy for the UK.


The Nuclear Skills Strategy Group has developed a long-term Skills Strategy for the nuclear sector, with reference to the Government’s Nuclear Industrial Strategy.  This strategy embraces the skills challenge brought about by a new fleet of nuclear power stations, the continued decommissioning of existing facilities and safe operation of existing facilities and building a new nuclear deterrent system.
