Nuclear staff get pounds 4m aid.

A pounds 4m scheme to help 1,200 nuclear energy workers prepare for future jobs is being launched today.

Business minister Edwina Hart said Menter Mon's Shaping the Future project will address the impact of the loss of the Trawsfynydd and Wylfa nuclear power plants.

It will provide career, mentoring, training and job search support to the workforce. Wylfa is scheduled to cease generating electricity in 2014, and Trawsfynydd is undergoing decommissioning.

Mrs Hart said: "Helping the workforce prepare for the future, grasp new opportunities and secure sustainable, alternative employment is essential."

Project director Judy Craske said: "North West Wales offers a unique concentration of scarce and sought after skills for employers to tap into."
