The Able seafarer Deck Apprenticeship is a job with an accompanying skills development programme under an Apprenticeship Agreement designed by employers in the sector. It allows the apprentice to gain technical knowledge and real practical experience on board ship, along with functional and personal skills, required for their immediate job and future career. These are acquired through a mix of learning in the workplace, formal off the job training at Fleetwood Nautical Campus and the opportunity to practice and embed new skills in a real work context.
Apprenticeship training programmes are available to both existing and new staff and for any age. Large employers can use their Apprenticeship Levy to pay for the training programmes also. For existing staff this offers an ideal opportunity to up-skill and retrain for promotion, whilst for recruitment of new staff, the apprenticeship offers personnel the opportunity to earn as they learn.
Candidates must be physically fit and able to pass the ENG1 medical requirements for a Deck Rating, including lookout duties.
Be committed and willing to work away from home.
