We help local people join our projects and will offer 30,000 new training places at Hinkley Point C between now and the station’s completion. Trainees will be able to upgrade their skills and earning potential by joining the work to fit miles of pipes, cables, equipment, and control systems. The opportunities have been made possible by Hinkley Point C’s £24 million investment into education, skills, and employment, including at three new Centres for Excellence in welding, electrical and mechanical skills.
- Over 1,100 apprentices were trained on the project to date.
- Over 500 welders have been trained at the Welding Centre of Excellence.
Sizewell C is increasing the number of apprentices it is aiming to employ from 1,000 to 1,500 apprentices. There will be apprenticeships for various construction roles, including degree-level engineering, digital engineering, welding, project management, and steel-fixing, and for many site support services, including operations management, logistics, environment, health and safety, security, and accountancy.
