SCAN Funders

SCAN can only be offered due to investment from our larger employers.  At the moment, SCAN is funded by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, Magnox Ltd,  Low Level Waste Repository Ltd  and  Sellafield Ltd 

SCAN investment by employers, provides a clear message that larger employers are starting to take an active leadership role for the skills requirements for their supply chains.  If your organisation would like to be involved in providing funding to this initiative - contact us


Nigel Couzens Head of People Strategy, NDA & Board member of the National Skills Academy Nuclear;

 “Attracting young people into our industry is essential in our drive to develop a sustainable, skilled workforce and the SCAN initiative will do just that.  It also gives support for local employers to take on young people knowing they will be trained to become highly skilled and help  their employer make the most of the opportunities working in the decommissioning arena can bring.

The initiative supports the Government’s drive to increase apprenticeships and I also hope that other major employers and relevant organisations will  also fund SCAN Apprenticeships throughout the nuclear sector.”

David McNerney, HR Director, Sellafield Ltd & Board member of the National Skills Academy Nuclear;

“Sellafield Ltd are really pleased to be able to provide investment funding to the Skills Academy for the Supply Chain Apprenticeships for Nuclear (SCAN) Scheme.  This investment will provide medium and small companies working in the nuclear supply chain an ideal opportunity for growing resource capability to deliver work for Sellafield Ltd.  Apprenticeships are a fantastic avenue to ensure we have a nuclear workforce with the skills, knowledge and experience and I would urge employers to get in touch with the Skills Academy to take benefit from all that Apprenticeships can bring to your business.”

John Graham, Head of HR & Training LLW Repository Ltd commented;

“SCAN offers an excellent vehicle to provide apprenticeship places through the Skills Academy.  LLWR is committed to growing the local skill pool and the central coordination of this initiative ensures our investment is put to best use by offering quality apprenticeships across a broad range of employers. LLWR is a keen supporter of the SCAN initiative and has every confidence that those participating in the initiative will witness a positive improvement to accessing employment opportunities in the nuclear industry.”
