Degree success for Sellafield Ltd engineers

‘The future of Sellafield is in safe hands,’ was the clear message at Warrington’s University Technical College where Sellafield Ltd engineering design apprentices celebrated the completion of their apprenticeships and BEng (hons) degrees.

The former design apprentices have studied a number of disciplines including civil, structural and architectural, control, electrical and instrumentation and mechanical and have now taken up full time roles with the company.

This cohort were part of Sellafield Ltd’s scheme that recruited 200 apprentices across 18 different schemes last year.

John Patterson, head of engineering design resources and development, Sellafield Ltd said:

The training scheme is excellent grounding for our new breed of nuclear workers. These graduates will play a big part in continuing the crucial work of cleaning up the country’s highest nuclear hazards.

Simon Wittridge, head of major projects, Sellafield Ltd who spoke at the event said:

Everyone working for Sellafield Ltd is delivering era-defining change, and our latest cohort of graduate design and project engineers will be fundamental to delivering our purpose – a clean and safe environment for future generations.

Our engineers will ensure that we’re at the forefront of engineering, innovation and project management.

Warrington North MP Charlotte Nichols, who also attended the graduation said:

As chair of both the All-Party Nuclear Group and the All-Party Group for Apprentices, I was delighted to attend and hear about the young nuclear workers journeys to this point.

They have shown dedication and perseverance to complete their courses and they now embark on an exciting career in the nuclear industry of which I’m a huge advocate. Good luck to them all.

Nick Mars, CE&I graduate engineer, Sellafield Ltd said:

I have no doubt that I have been given unrivalled opportunities for technical, academic, and personal development during my apprenticeship which I’d consider invaluable for any young person starting their career in engineering.
