The course will provide learners with skills and qualifications that demonstrate their competency to work as a seafarer

UKSA, the national youth maritime training charity based in Cowes, has launched a new fully funded foundation course for young people aged 16, who have just finished their GCSEs and are looking to start a career in the maritime industry.

The Maritime Foundation course will provide learners with skills and qualifications that demonstrate their competency to work as a seafarer. The two-year course is suitable for those with little to no experience of the maritime sector.

Completion of the course will open up opportunities for work on-board superyachts, in the Merchant Navy, Royal Navy, on work boats and within the fisheries industry.
