Nuclear Institute


The Nuclear Institute (NI) is pleased to announce the opening of nominations from employers and training providers for our awards that recognise the achievements of nuclear professionals who are the future leaders of the UK nuclear industry.

As part of the Nuclear Institute's drive to promote Nuclear Professionalism centred around the Nuclear Delta, the NI has refreshed some of its annual awards and now welcomes submissions from across the nuclear industry for the following:

Jack Edwards Prize for Best Technician – an annual prize awarded by the NI for the Best Technician working today in the nuclear industry. Nominations are welcome from the employing company.

NI Young Apprentice/Technician Award – an annual prize awarded to the rising stars of the UK nuclear industry. Nominees will either have recently completed their apprenticeship or recently qualified as a new technician. The prize is aimed at personnel who display excellence and are seen a future leaders of the industry. Nominations are welcome from the training provider or employer responsible for the apprentice/technician.

NI Young Professionals Award – an annual prize awarded to the rising stars of the UK nuclear industry. It is aimed at personnel who are within the first 10 years of their nuclear career, who have already achieved success and who are seen as the future leaders of the industry. Nominations are welcome from the employing company.

In all cases, the proposed award winner will receive £250 in prize money, a signed NI commemorative certificate and free attendance of an NI Event of the winners choosing. The awards will be presented at the employer/training provider’s local prize giving ceremony or at the NI event.

Mark Lyons, Trustee and Chair of the Education & Training Committee at the Nuclear Institute, said: “In support of our promotion of Nuclear Professionalism (based upon the concept of the NI’s Nuclear Delta), the Nuclear Institute as the body for nuclear professionals across all disciplines and roles within the UK nuclear sector is aiming with these awards to help identify and enthuse the next generation of scientists and engineers from within the nuclear industry."

The entries must be received no later than 31 July 2014 and will be judged by the NI’s Education & Training Committee.

About the Nuclear Institute

The Nuclear Institute is the UK membership organisation for Nuclear Professionals, with nearly 2,000 members working in all areas of the nuclear sector. We maintain the standards of professionalism in the nuclear sector through our code of conduct and the Nuclear Delta. Of most importance to us is the education and training of nuclear professionals, as well as the understanding of the nuclear industry from the wider public. As a learned society we also act as the independent voice of the industry.

The institute was created on the 1st January 2009 from the merger of the British Nuclear Energy Society and the Institution of Nuclear Engineers, who between them have been serving the industry from the late 1950's, not very long after the industry first came into being.
