National College for Nuclear

At the National College for Nuclear we aim to revolutionise the way people are educated through innovation and collaboration with industry, creating an eco-system of learning.

Introduction

The National College for Nuclear facility located at Lakes College in West Cumbria officially opened in February 2018.

The facility holds up to 300 students and subjects taught include: Nuclear Decommissioning & Waste Management, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering & Power Systems, Applied Science and Civil Engineering.

The new facility provides a state of the art project centre which includes resources such as robotics, advanced control systems, thermo and fluid dynamics rigs and electrical power generation/transmission.

Overview

The college combines theoretical work with hands on experience, including the use of: virtual reality rooms with world class resources. The style of learning within the college is “experience based” and students follow nuclear standards and behaviour expectations.

There is also an exciting opportunity for firms in the Nuclear supply chain across the country to send their workers to the college for block release delivery supporting extensive practical sessions.

We want to support schools in their teaching of subjects like maths, science and technology. We’re exporting our knowledge and skills to the younger generation to give them an opportunity to experience them.

Qualified for the job

There’s no point equipping students with academic qualifications if they’re not ready for the world of work. At the National College for Nuclear we ensure that there is a good mix of vocational and academic within our courses.

All of our courses are designed with the needs of employers very much in mind. So whether it’s an entry-level programme for a school leaver, ECITB Level 3 Nuclear Engineering & Science, BSC (Hons) or BEng (Hons) you can be assured that our students are well-prepared for the workplace and naturally because of our belief in the power of on-the-job learning, we also offer a full suite of apprenticeships up to degree level.
