Promotion of careers, skills and training is a priority for British Marine and as part of our membership of Maritime UK, British Marine was invited to attend the Maritime stand at the recent Skills Scotland careers event in Glasgow earlier this month.

British Marine Scotland members once again joined the Maritime UK stand at the event in order to promote career opportunities in the leisure and small commercial marine sector.

'Awakening the Giant', a Strategic Framework for Scotland's Marine Tourism Sector 2015-20 was the first Marine Tourism Strategy to be adopted in Scotland. The update for 2020-25, Giant Strides, is again industry led and industry partners are keen to hear opinions on the draft vision and mission to help shape the final strategy. Feedback on the draft is essential to ensure the final strategy meets the needs and aspirations of the sector. Further information on the consultation and the draft strategy isavailable here. Consultation ends on 17 January 2020.

British Marine is being increasingly asked to go along to school careers events and if you would be happy to get more involved in careers promotion, please let us know and we can forward further information. Support for careers promotion includes British Marine job cards, flyers and careers videos.
