About Us

The UK’s nuclear industry is facing its biggest challenge in decades. Existing power stations near the end of their working lives are ready to be decommissioned, while a new wave of plants has been given the go ahead. Nuclear is back on the agenda.

The factors behind this resurgence are complex, but one thing is clear – the need for suitably skilled graduates from the UK is greater than ever.

Engineers, scientists, business minds, talented managers and financial experts will all be essential to the future of this sector. That’s why leading businesses and organisations have come together to create a new graduate training programme; nucleargraduates.

Created and established by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) in 2008, the nucleargraduates programme has been wholly funded by organisations across the UK nuclear industry since 2010. nucleargraduates is managed on behalf of the NDA by Energus.
