A local training provider has joined forces with the Hull Maritime project.
They will be offering a new ‘Maritime Futures’ training programme for young people in Hull who aspire to work at sea.
East Coast Maritime Training, which specialises in delivering training within the fishing and offshore industries will deliver the ‘Maritime Futures’ programme which will offer 100 young people, aged 16-25 and the unemployed the chance to complete the recognised training and develop the right skills.
The intensive course is designed to support those who are looking to start their career in the fishing or offshore sectors, whether that is on oil rigs, the fast-growing wind farms, or the fishing industry.
The recognised training aims to ensure that 75 percent of those completing the course secure employment within 12 months of completion.
Thanks to funding awarded to the Hull Maritime Foundation from the Trinity House Maritime Charity (THMC), the Hull Maritime project is able to offer this vocational training. Also, input and first-hand knowledge will be offered from a number of former trawlermen. This will all give young people a real insight into working in these industries.
“We are delighted to be working with East Coast Maritime Training, specialists in delivering high-quality training in this field.
“The Hull Maritime project is all about offering opportunities, investing in our future, and developing skills within the city. This training programme is just one of the ways in which we will do that.”
The first cohort of training will get underway in the summer.
