LOCAL youngsters will be able to find out more about a new career in the nuclear energy industry when Dungeness B power station holds an Apprentice Information Day on Saturday.

It takes place at the station’s training centre from 9am - 5pm and is run by EDF.

It will cover everything from studying on the south coast for the first two years, to what qualifications are needed and how to apply.

Station director Martin Pearson said: “We expect there to be a lot of interest and I would encourage people to book up as early as possible.

“Our scheme is very highly regarded and the sky really is the limit for our apprentices. Several members of EDF Energy’s executive team started with the company in this way, so the message is this course could be the start of a truly amazing engineering career.

“While anyone who meets the criteria can apply, we are very keen to encourage females to consider a career in engineering at EDF Energy.”

If you would like to come along to the information day, please call Karen Bunney on 01797 343436 between 9.30am and 2.30pm to reserve your place.
