Nuclear Bursary Open
Deadline for applications 17th January 2020
The Nuclear Bursary provides financial support to individuals for education and training opportunities to help with starting or furthering their professional career in nuclear.
The Nuclear Bursary scheme, managed by NSAN and funded by the ECITB and NDA will help the sector to deliver one of the NSSG’s key themes of ‘Exciting the Next Generation.’ (attracting and recruiting a diverse range of people into the sector and retaining them with the appropriate level of knowledge transfer in order to minimise the number of fragile skills).
This Bursary Award round will support individuals on programmes of study or training relevant to meeting the demand for nuclear industry with a particular emphasis on:
• Mobility – supporting individuals into the sector from other industries
• Equality, Diversity and Inclusion – the sector would benefit from greater diversity and as such, applications are particularly welcome from female applicants, from challenging socio-economic backgrounds, unemployed individuals and those from an ethnic minority, as they are under-represented within the nuclear industry.
• SME Development – applications are encouraged from individuals from micro and small businesses.
• UK Skills Gap – applications are encouraged from individuals to support identified skills gaps in the industry. Further information is on this is supplied in the application form.
The bursary can be used to support an individual on placements, internships, secondments and programmes of study relevant to the sector. Relevant courses of study include: Higher Level Short Courses, Honours Degrees, Masters Degrees, Post Graduate, CPD qualifications and workforce development.
