To carry out Maintenance at a Nuclear Power Plant and to complete my NVQ along side my Qualification Manual.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


I learn something new everyday, I have lots become alot more confident with talking to poeple I don't know. Everyone is very helpful and they are willing to take the time to explain things to you.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


The first 2 years I was training in Portsmouth which was being delivered by Babcock, unfortunately in my opinion didn't actually teach us the things that we needed to know.

Since being back on station I have learnt so many new things that I use everyday, however I wish that I had learnt these things before I has come back to station.

4. How well organised/structured is your programme?


Since being back on station it is a lot better, and I have been progressing well.

I wish they could support me a little more, however it's probably better than most places.
