EDF Energy's proposals for a new nuclear power station on the Suffolk coast

Capable of generating enough electricity to supply around five million homes

The two UK EPR reactors would generate electricity for up to 60 years

At the peak of construction the project would provide around 5,600 employment opportunities

Once operational, the new power station would support around 900 permanent jobs

Contributing to the UK's future needs for low carbon, secure and affordable energy

Suffolk One students visit Sizewell B on National Apprenticeship Week

Dozens of engineering students from Suffolk One enjoyed a look behind the scenes of a working power station as part of activities being held at Sizewell B on National Apprenticeship Week.

Over 30 students studying for their B-Tech Level 3 in Engineering brought their studies to life as they visited Sizewell B to see how the station generates low carbon power for over 2.5million homes and businesses.

Paul Morton, Sizewell B station director, said: “It was great to welcome Suffolk One students to Sizewell B on National Apprenticeship Week and I hope they feel inspired to consider a career with us in the future.”

EDF Energy’s award winning apprentice training scheme starts with two years studying at HMS Sultan near Portsmouth. The apprentices spend the final two years at their home bases where they get on-the-job training.

The scheme is open to anyone from year 11 upwards, the minimum entry is five GCSEs at Grade C or above (or Grade 4 and above in the new GCSE grading structure), National 5 or equivalent, including Maths, English and 2 of either Science, Technical or Engineering subjects
