The article deals with the need to address engineering and science skills shortages before the next generation of nuclear power stations can be built in Great Britain, according to Clive Smith, the recently appointed nuclear skills director of the industry's sector skills council, Cogent. Smith relates that around 17,000 people would need training or re-skilling over the next 20 years, as old sites were decommissioned and power stations are built. Smith reveals that the prospects for recruitment in the industry were improving.
