Part of our role is to promote better understanding of the importance of skills to the success of the maritime sector. We have therefore contributed to a number of Government consultations, and we are currently supporting the work of Maritime UK which set up a People and Skills Steering Group to take forward the nine skills and education recommendations from the Maritime Growth Study. Bill Walworth, MSA Chairman, chairs the Steering Group. You can read more about its work here.
John Hayes was speaking at the Maritime Skills Alliance's reception for London International Shipping Week, held at Trinity House. He said:
Let’s not think in terms of modest incremental increases, but rise to the challenge of doubling the number of apprenticeships offered.
I want the Board of every maritime business, whether they pay the Levy or not, to discuss how apprenticeships can help them succeed by growing the next generation of talent.
The Minister was launching "Maritime Apprenticeships: your future, their future, our future", a booklet jointly published by the Department for Transport and industry lead body Maritime UK.
