FOR THE fifth year Hunterston B Nuclear Power Station has started a group of apprentices on training for a career in nuclear engineering.

Hunterston B's newest apprentices have enjoyed a week of team building in the Lake District including orienteering and high wire climbing.

The event happened before setting off to HMS Sultan, a world class training centre in Portsmouth.

The seven apprentices from Hunterston B will join other successful candidates from EDF Energy's other nuclear power station sites for the first two years of the four-year apprenticeship. They will return for on-site training for their final two years.
