NSAN was established by nuclear employers and government to address the skills challenges facing the nuclear sector. It provides a forum in which organisations can come together to discuss these challenges and develop solutions to address them. It currently has around 145 member organisations drawn from both the public and private sectors.

Ann McCall, Waste Management Director at RWM said:

Having worked closely with NSAN in recent months we are thrilled to be confirmed as a member. We are committed to maintaining and driving up skills within our organisation and we look forward to playing an active role within the Skills Academy.

NSAN works with employers in the nuclear sector to develop a range of solutions which can help train staff and support them in developing their skills. One example is the Nuclear Training Network, an online portal where staff can access a range of training courses.

RWM has recently produced a new e-learning training course which is now available via the NSAN portal. Aimed primarily at those involved in decommissioning and waste management, the course provides an overview of RWM, its role as the public sector delivery body for a geological disposal facility (GDF) and the support it provides to radioactive waste packagers. More than 150 people have already signed up for the course from across the nuclear industry.
