             NUCLEAR APPRENTICESHIP AWARDS 2010
The National Skills Academy for Nuclear believes the Apprenticeship route
is one of the key avenues for replenishing and building skills for the sector

      The awards are to recognise and celebrate exceptional apprentices
      employed in the nuclear sector. The aim is to have Regional Award
    winners (from the NW/NE, SE/E, SW, Wales and Scotland) and National
      Award Winners that are role models to inspire others to undertake
                               apprenticeships.

Nominees who progress through the selection process will be invited to attend the
high profile UK Nuclear Skills Awards Ceremony which will be held on the evening of
the 10th March 2011 in Manchester. The Skills Award Ceremony is a collaborative
event organised by the National Skills Academy for Nuclear and Cogent Sector
Skills Council, which will feature both the Regional and National award
presentations
