Chief Executive awarded Honorary Fellowship of the Nuclear Institute. | National Skills Academy for Nuclear
The fellowship was awarded to Jean Llewellyn by Paul Thomas President of the Nuclear Institute at the annual northwest Nuclear Institute dinner on the 13 th May 2010.
Upon announcing Jean's fellowship, Paul Thomas highlighted that this honorary fellowship was awarded to Jean as a "person of recognised distinction in the nuclear sector. Jean is only the second person to have been awarded this honorary status by the Nuclear Institute, and is the first female recipient. Jean's connection to the nuclear industry began in 2003, when she was Head of Skills Policy for the Northwest Development Agency. Whilst in this position, Jean was chair of the Nuclear Employers Steering Group for 2 years, a period which saw Jean's first successful nuclear skills project, a bid to create the ENERGUS training facility in West Cumbria. This training facility has since become the Northwest flagship delivery centre for the Skills Academy. Jean Llewellyn has become recognised across the sector for her tireless leadership of the employer-led National Skills Academy for Nuclear. Since the Skills Academy's inception in 2007, Jean has been a key driving force in building and sustaining the organisation as an effective and viable force for ensuring the sector has the skills necessary for maintaining a safe world-class nuclear industry in the UK. Her excellent leadership is further illustrated by the National Skills Academy for Nuclear being the first Skills Academy to satisfy the requirements of Government and Stakeholders on its first submission. At the official launch of the Skills Academy (Jan 2008), the then Energy Minister, Malcolm Wicks commented that, "with Jean and the team she leads, the Skills Academy is in safe hands." Under Jean's leadership, the Skills Academy is going from strength to strength and is now in its final year of government funding, and will achieve its target of becoming self sustaining within its first 3 years of operation. Jean has remained focussed on ensuring the Skills Academy is employer-led in all activities; providing the sector with nuclear skills development, for the nuclear industry by the nuclear industry. Jean Llewellyn, Chief Executive of the National Skills Academy for Nuclear; " I have had the pleasure of working closely with Jean and the Skills Academy, since the initial planning stages of the Skills Academy, which began in 2006. I am sure that all the board, which is comprised of Nuclear employer representatives, will agree that this honorary status is very well deserved, and could not have been given to a more deserving person. Jean has worked assiduously with nuclear employers to develop skills solutions for the industry. The nuclear sector is very lucky to have Jean leading its Skills Academy, and I look forward to continuing to work with Jean on future solutions to the skills requirements of the nuclear industry." "Jean took up the critically important position of CEO of the National Skills Academy for Nuclear with great energy and commitment and of course a respected track record working with the nuclear industry. It was clear from the outset that she would make the vision of a Skills Academy a reality, steering it to success with tremendous industry support and working with us at Cogent drive up skills and training across this renaissance sector. This Honorary Fellowship is an accolade which reflects all this hard work and on behalf of everyone at Cogent SSC, I would like to congratulate Jean on this recognition from the Nuclear Institute."
