The Merchant Navy Training Board’s (MNTB) Careers at Sea campaign is looking for support from vessel operators for its “Tidal Tuesday” initiative, taking place across the country during National Careers Week (5th – 10th March).
Tidal Tuesday (6th March) will aim to inform schools, colleges and youth groups across the UK of the opportunities at sea available to young people and the lifelong career prospects offered by the maritime industry.
Firms involved in the sector can participate the event by conducting a vessel or office tour, taking part at a local careers fair, giving a talk or simply raising awareness via social media.
On Monday 15th October, NWA Secretary Mark Ranson attended the first meeting of the Clean Maritime Council. The council, formed of 15 selected industry experts including the NWA, will make the plan for a zero emissions UK maritime sector.
On Wednesday 7th November we hold our NWA Safety Forum at Hoylake Sailing School in Wirral.
The International Marine Contractors Association has recently issued an updated Common Marine Inspection Document and Marine Inspection of Small Workboat inspection question sets.
