Core Capabilities

Babcock International Group, through its Cavendish Nuclear business, has a vast wealth of technical industry experience and as a National Skills Academy for Nuclear Quality Assured Provider contributes to working groups and national discussions on the nuclear industry skills strategy.

Our experience includes:

  • Delivery of the Advanced Apprenticeship in Engineering programme at the Babcock Engineering Academy at HMS Sultan, Gosport for EDF Energy with technical training designed to meet the nuclear energy industry’s individual and exacting standards.

Success rates of the Advanced Apprenticeship are outstanding and are currently 97.7% for timely success. The Babcock Engineering Academy is judged to be Outstanding by Ofsted and is the 2014 SEMTA Sector Skills Council Training Partner of the Year.
  • Programme Design and Delivery - a comprehensive portfolio of short courses, which includes the National Skills Academy Nuclear (NSAN) Level 2 Award for Nuclear Industry Awareness qualification and the Human Performance Tool Box course, is currently being delivered by Babcock to the workforce of URENCO, the nuclear industry’s supplier of enriched uranium fuel for nuclear power stations. Through a Managed Training Service Babcock also manages competency recording and management in line with nuclear site licence conditions 10 and 12 for a UK nuclear fuel enrichment business.
