Devolution jigsaw: Supporting the nuclear industry - University of Cumbria

02 Mar 2017

The University of Cumbria will provide further support to the local nuclear industry through providing education and training to both the next generation of nuclear workers and the existing workforce to meet the demands of both current and future nuclear skills requirements.

The university is the HE provider for the Cumbria hub of the new National College for Nuclear, supporting over 28,000 nuclear jobs in North West England. This work builds on Cumbria’s current support for
education and training in the nuclear industry, including FDSc Radiation Protection and MSc Nuclear Security Management, in providing courses designed by employers for a range of highly specialised careers.
