Nuclear Week in Parliament helps pave way for further collaboration

16th February 2023

iSH Managing Director John Maddison opened up opportunities for future collaboration to help the wider West Cumbria economy when he attended the Nuclear Week in Parliament at the beginning of the month.

John attended four fantastic sessions – the Urenco Global Panel Event: ‘Generation Climate – Embracing the Voices of Youth in Nuclear’ hosted by Virginia Crosbie; Rolls-Royce SMR: ‘Ask an Engineer’ hosted by Stevenson, John; the British Nuclear Showcase Reception hosted by Lord Iain McNicol, and the Skills and Apprenticeships Fair hosted by Charlotte Nichols.

John said: “It was inspirational to see Cumbria so well represented at the careers fair, including some brilliant apprentices and graduates who have benefited from our fantastic network of local colleges. It was great to see them representing their organisations so well at the Houses of Parliament.”

All the events were offered an important opportunity to hear about the vast array of world-class work going on in the nuclear industry across the length and breadth of the country.

iSH looks forward to working with others on how best to move forward with innovation and collaboration, ensuring that there are clear pathways into training and employment and that opportunities are maximised to regenerate communities across West Cumbria.
