The plan would see courses run by firms in the nuclear sector allocated credits that would count towards National Vocational Qualification or similar credentials.
"Employers do a lot of training in the nuclear sector but at the moment it is not recognised," National Skills Academy for Nuclear chief executive Jean Llewellyn.
"With our Nuclear Credit Framework, we will identify the best and give those courses credits that can count towards a qualification."
Llewellyn added that the move will not only help those already in the sector boost their CVs, but it will also make nuclear more attractive to young people.
"It makes the sector look more attractive as it's one where you can progress."
The National Skills Academy for Nuclear was launched at the beginning of February amid forecasts that the sector would need to recruit an additional 10,000 people over the next 10 years to cope with the demand from decommissioning work alone.
Although its primary focus is to attract young people to the sector, it also backs the training of those already in the sector and from other engineering disciplines to cope with the skills demand.
