As an organisation operating in a tightly regulated industry, AREVA RMC provides high hazard safety and environmental risk assessment to the nuclear industry to allow it to meet regulatory demands. In recognition of their critical work for the nuclear industry, AREVA RMC was recognised at the Inaugural NEF Assured Award Ceremony held at Church House, Westminster on the 25th of October 2011.
AREVA RMC not only ensures the qualification of their staff but goes above and beyond to encourage innovation through career development opportunities for their employees. AREVA RMC has put in place a structured approach to training and development to ensure all staff are suitably qualified and experienced (SQEP). The Advisers noted the AREVA RMC competency database, which together with the appraisal system enable individuals to easily identify areas that they want/need to develop. The Advisers commend AREVA’s RMC’s People Review, which helps to identify emerging talent, areas for development and supports succession planning.
“AREVA RMC has demonstrated a dedication to continuous improvement within their training and development and we are happy to award them NEF Assured (Nuclear) status.” Iain Nixon, NEF Adviser
As a risk management consultancy, AREVA RMC also delivers training to the nuclear industry. AREVA RMC is now seeking to expand its external training provision, by drawing on its in-house expertise and existing courses.
“It was a very good review process of our internal training. As a member of the nuclear supply chain, it helped to see outside the market. The next step is to know how to address external training.” Helen Higgs, Marketing and HR Director, AREVA RMC
By gaining NEF Assured (Nuclear) status, AREVA RMC’s training department will be recognised as an employer assured provider of the National Skills Academy for Nuclear. This is the first step in enabling AREVA RMC’s in external training to be aligned to and benchmarked against employer-led and agreed Industry Training Standards on the Nuclear Skills Passport system.
“By gaining NEF Assured (Nuclear) accreditation, training departments are demonstrating their commitment to high quality skills delivery. “ Jean Llewellyn, Chief Executive, National Skills Academy Nuclear
The NEF and the National Skills Academy for Nuclear congratulates AREVA RMC on their achievement and their exemplary approach to developing their workforce.
