The two-year programme consists of three secondments, two with your sponsoring organisation and a third secondment chosen by you. You can expect to find yourself working with Government, on-site, with the private sector supply chain and regulatory authorities. There is also the possibility of undertaking an international secondment; to date our graduates have completed secondments with over 100 different organisations and bodies across the nuclear industry, both at home and abroad.
