MERCHANT NAVY CADETSHIPS
Thank you for your interest in Humber Maritime College.
Developed over the past two years and launching in September 2019, we are the UK’s newest MNTB and MCA approved maritime college.
We are based on the River Humber in North East Lincolnshire and are part of the TEC Partnership, a dynamic, collaborative and entrepreneurial group of further and higher education colleges. Our aim is to be recognised as a leading maritime college which brings new ideas and innovation to the training of Merchant Navy Cadets and others working in the maritime industries.
Cadets will study across two centres giving them access to a wide range of education, welfare and social facilities. The specialist marine lectures will take place at Humber Maritime College, while workshops activity will take place at the Ofsted Outstanding Grimsby Institute, a short distance away from Humber Maritime College and also near to our halls of residence.
Your cadetship is fully sponsored by employers which means you gain your university level qualification without the worry of fees. You will also earn while you are learning which is a great opportunity for those aiming to become a marine Engineering Officer.
All cadets are required to gain 12 months’ combined seagoing service and workshop skills training. There will be a range of assessment methods used throughout the cadetship.
There are many benefits for cadets, both during training and once qualified. Once qualified as a marine Engineering Officer, cadets will normally begin as a 4th engineer and can progress to becoming a chief engineer.
