Horwich-based Apprenticeship and training provider, Alliance Learning , have become one of just a handful of training organisations in the region to be accredited as a quality assured provider for the National Skills Academy for Nuclear (NSAN).
This national recognition means that Alliance Learning will now have the opportunity to provide high quality apprenticeships and commercial training programmes within the UK Nuclear industry to ensure it has the skilled, competent and safe workforce it needs to deal with the current and future UK nuclear programme.
In order to become part of the NSAN network, Alliance Learning had to successfully complete the NSAN’s application process which involved providing evidence of the quality of their provision and services, including their Ofsted report, business plan and financial viability.
Lee Morris, Engineering Business Improvement Manager at Alliance Learning, said:
“Alliance Learning is extremely proud to have achieved accreditation through NSAN. Our main aim in this partnership is to provide valuable training to the Nuclear industry and support in development of current and future engineers within this sector.”
Just weeks after receiving the news of the NSAN accreditation, Alliance Learning have also been awarded a £60,000 training contract with NIS, a specialist integrated engineering company based in Chorley who have a dedicated nuclear division.
Alliance Learning will be providing a bespoke block release training programme for the first six months of the apprenticeship. This will include a wide range of basic skills and include hand fitting, mechanical maintenance, hydraulics & pneumatics, electrical wiring and maintenance. The apprentices will also be studying towards a traditional City & Guilds technical certificate in mechanical engineering to enhance their understanding. The Apprenticeships are delivered over a 4 year period to ensure the learners achieve the required skills for NIS.
There are currently government grants available for companies looking to take on an Apprentice. For more information on this or any of our training courses please contact Alliance Learning on 01204 689592.
