The Culham Centre for Fusion Energy is at the forefront of world research into nuclear fusion with the ultimate aim of producing electricity by the middle of this century. We continue to have problems in recruiting the skilled technical staff needed to maintain and expand our work programmes and attribute this directly to apprentice training going out of fashion in the mid-1990s and post graduate training diminishing at the same time. The UTC, coupled with suitable employment and further development opportunities, will greatly assist in addressing skill shortages.
