National Skills Academy Nuclear Award Winner

Congratulations to Waterside Training apprentice Cailey Miller, who is celebrating such a fantastic achievement after winning ‘Advanced Apprentice of the Year’ and ‘Nuclear Apprentice of the Year’ at the recent UK Nuclear Skills Awards 2024!

The awards are designed to show the excellence that exists within the nuclear sector and highlight the stars of both present and future.
Cailey studied her advanced apprenticeship with Waterside Training together with her employer NUVIA, and now works as a Mechanical Designer leading the way for females in the Engineering and Nuclear industry.

“I am truly honoured to have received such prestigious awards, marking the successful completion of my advanced apprenticeship with NUVIA and Waterside Training.

My time at Waterside Training provided me with invaluable experience and knowledge of engineering fundamentals. I gained confidence in my abilities and developed solid foundations to start my career journey.”

We are very proud of Cailey’s success and the team at Waterside are very privileged to have supported her along her engineering journey.
Well Done Cailey, we wish you all the very best for a bright future!!


Waterside Training have been our apprenticeship provider for the past 7 years. They are an amazing team who offer great customer service and always go the extra mile. Our apprentices are cared for and well looked after which feels like they are part of our own team and forms a true, trustworthy partnership.

Essity have many colleges under management, and I believe Waterside Training is the strongest on the market. With that said, other colleges should be seeking to work in collaboration with Waterside to improve the UK programmes and be the best they can be!

Any concerns or issues that may arise are always dealt with in a timely, personal and professional manner and events are always enjoyable, well organised and a shining example of how much effort they put into our apprentices and the services they provide.

Best in Class!
