Maritime Training & Careers Day

Seawork was delighted to work with Maritime UK and the Solent LEP to deliver a programme focussing on careers in the commercial marine industry at Seawork 2022. Commercial Marine is an attractive, multifaceted sector looking to attract trainees and graduates - Seawork exhibitors demonstrate the huge scope of roles in the industry, both on the water and shore-based, the opportunities available for people with or without qualifications, and the schemes and help that is out there to facilitate this. 

Lorna Wagner, Programme Manager, Maritime UK remarked, “This is the first time that Maritime UK have worked with Seawork to deliver a programme for college students, aged 16-19 to attend the final day of Seawork.  On arrival students received a briefing from me about the maritime sector and the breadth of careers that are available, the UKSA talked about some of the apprenticeships and then Gordon Meadow, SeaBot blew their minds with information about Future Tech, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.  After this the students went out and about into the show to meet with employers.”

Lorna continued, “I have been thrilled with how the employers have embraced the opportunity to talk to young people.  I think that this is a test for us to see how this day might work, as it is a business-to-business trade show and having young people on site does require some adaptions and differences in presentation, however I have had employers chasing me to meet with more students.  The feedback from the students was that they had learnt about different companies, job opportunities, apprenticeships, summer jobs and more.   I think that this first Maritime Training and Careers Day has been a huge success and we have had some lovely quotes back from the young students that reveals the knowledge that they have gained here at Seawork, such as why a ridge has been cut into the edge of a propellor blade and how deep divers can go with different types of equipment.   So are these young people learning about the maritime sector – yes they are – and are we by working together giving them the opportunity to meet employers – yes we are.  We are looking forward to delivering another Training and Careers Day at Seawork 2023”
