Description

The Nuclear Degree Apprenticeship Scheme recruits and develops A-Level / B-TEC qualified (or equivalent) individuals to become the next generation of nuclear engineers, scientists and inspectors. Nuclear Degree Apprentices will develop an understanding of working on Nuclear Licenced Sites, and the regulation of such, supporting the safe design, build, commissioning, operation and decommisisoning of the civil nuclear industry including power generation.

The Nuclear Degree Apprenticeship is a five year programme, during which you will work towards the Level 6 Nuclear Scientist & Nuclear Engineer Standard. This involves an initial phase of engineering appreciation and awareness, followed by a series of exciting placements within areas such as nuclear integration, plant operation, maintenance, testing, commissioning and nuclear safety, inspection and regulation.

Our Nuclear Degree Apprentices follow a set placement schedule, which will include placements with the different engineering and science specialisms that are needed to regulate the complex, complicated and hazardous nuclear industry. This will primarily be at our headquarters in Bootle. During the apprenticeship, you will be involved in a wide variety of tasks and have ample opportunity to develop technical knowledge and mature professional behaviours. These tasks could include: specification and management of projects; individual research to update engineering good practice; assessing the adequacy of safety claims, inspecting operations or maintenance, and being part of an investigation team.

This will build into a comprehensive portfolio of experiences to demonstrate the knowledge and competencies gained. You will also complete a BEng (Hons) Degree in Nuclear Engineering which runs for the duration of the apprenticeship and is fully funded by the organisation. Upon successful completion of the apprenticeship you will have gained a BEng (Hons) Degree in Nuclear Engineering from Lancaster University. You will have also gained five years of experience within various technical specialisms related to the regulation of the civil nuclear industry. Opportunities for career progression within ONR are excellent subject to a formal employment offer being made.
