National Skills Academy for Nuclear chief to be Jean Llewellyn

Jean Llewellyn has been appointed as the chief executive of the National Skills Academy for Nuclear.

The academy was approved by skills minister David Lammy at the end of September, after a business case was put forward by the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA).

Llewellyn, in her role as head of Skills Policy for the NWDA, has been involved in the nuclear skills agenda for the past four years.

She was chair of the National Nuclear Employers Steering Group for two years, a period which saw a successful bid to create the Nuclear Academy training facility in West Cumbria, due for completion in early 2008.

Joanna Woolf, CEO of Cogent Sector Skills Council, the parent organisation of the National Skills Academy for Nuclear, said: “As project director, Jean has led the committed team which has made the Nuclear Academy vision a reality and we wish her every success in her new post and in supporting the industry to ensure it continues to get the high level skills it needs to succeed.”

Llewellyn said: “I am delighted to undertake this exciting and challenging role, having led on the establishment of the academy and the conception of its vision.

“A successful academy is essential in ensuring the future success and sustainability of the nuclear sector in the UK.”
