Heritage Marine Foundation

Charity description

Heritage Marine Foundation logo
Heritage Marine Foundation is a new trail blazing apprenticeship scheme working towards teaching, preserving and promoting traditional maritime skills. We believe strongly that preservation though operation is the key to safeguarding the future of historic ships and maritime heritage.

The Foundation has been established over the last year and has has recently made a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund as well as other organisations with the intention of receiving funding to create a trail blazing apprenticeship which should place 8- 10 people a year on a three year training programme. The bid would enable the course to run for five years. The apprenticeship will be tailor made to reflect the needs of the industry. Looking like a traditional apprenticeship each participant will spend half of the 3 years ashore working in a traditional Ship/Boatyard environment and the other half away at sea on traditional vessels of various types. Despite looking and running like a traditional apprenticeship it will carry modern accreditation, allowing more skilled people to flow into the industry equipped with worthwhile and meaningful qualifications.
