The Customer

The UK Atomic Energy Authority is a government research organisation responsible for the development of nuclear fusion power. Its work includes managing MAST (the UK’s fusion energy experiment) and JET (the EU fusion energy programme) at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy


The work had two objectives:

  • To develop a generic bid that would enable UKAEA to respond quickly to apprenticeship funding opportunities
  • Identify potential issues for UKAEA when applying for future apprenticeship funding


The Approach

The following approach was adopted:

  • Analysis of areas for improvement in original bid
  • Research on requirements for future bids
  • Facilitated discussion with potential partners and existing apprentices
  • Drafting of detailed material

The Outcomes

  • Report on areas for improvement within the original bid, identifying key points to address within future bids
  • Production of detailed written content for use in any future apprenticeship funding bid

“Silverlock provided an excellent service. They were flexible, responsive and could not have been more helpful and proactive.”

 Paula Barham – Senior Procurement Manager, UK Atomic Energy Authority
