Nuclear apprentice Beth wins national award

Sizewell B apprentice Beth Gant has been crowned EDF fleet-wide apprentice of the year, according to East Anglian Daily Times.

The Leiston nuclear power station worker was picked from 45 graduating apprentices.

“I knew I didn’t want to go to uni after my A-Levels so took the time to think about what I wanted to do next. I liked the idea of hands on learning so began to look into local apprenticeships,” she said.

“My dad is an electrical engineer and I liked the sound of what he did so began to look for apprenticeships in that area.”

Beth discovered the EDF engineering apprenticeships and following a successful application started on the four year programme in 2016.

“I’m very proud to have been chosen to win this award,” she said. “It is great recognition for the work that I have put into the apprenticeship and the extra-curricular activities that I have taken part in. I now hope that I can further my career within the company and reach my full potential in the years to come.”
