Nuclear new build construction employment scenarios

A report commissioned by the Sector Skills Council and Industry Training Board for the construction industry looks at construction workforce requirements for the proposed nuclear new build (NNB) programme and its possible implications for future training requirements.

As part of its plans, the UK Government has identified eight sites as being suitable for building the next generation of nuclear reactors and this presents the UK’s construction industry with a significant opportunity, providing it has a suitably skilled workforce to carry out the work. This report was commissioned as a result of the need to gain a
better understanding of the construction workforce requirements for the proposed nuclear new build (NNB) programme and its possible implications for future training requirements.
