SUNSEEKER APPRENTICES WIN COMPETITION AT SEAWORK BOAT SHOW
The Apprentices Competition was held at Seawork’s Training and Careers Day in Southampton, an event that sought to promote careers in the maritime industry.
British Marine challenged competing apprentices to design the controls for a motor from design to construction, including a circuit diagram for their designed system, critical calculations set to meet ISO safety standards and final wiring and assembly using test rigs. The apprentices were awarded points for clear marking, efficiency and adherence to their initial design.
Alex Bowman, Head of Organisational Development at Sunseeker International, commented:
“We are exceptionally proud of our Level 3 apprentices for winning and becoming runners-up in the BMEEA competition. This achievement is testament to their hard work and enthusiasm and the quality of training provided by Bournemouth and Poole College and their mentors at work, who pass down their knowledge and experience. We are confident that all our apprentices will soon become exceptionally skilled and highly qualified in their field of expertise.”
In addition to the award-winning Sunseeker Apprenticeship Scheme, the British boat builder has also launched an industry-first Skills Academy open to anyone interested in pursuing a career in marine manufacturing. In just 12 weeks, applicants will learn trade skills across five boat-building specialisms, including carpentry, plumbing, composite bonding, engineering and electrical installations.
Limited places exist for September and November starts across boat building and composites manufacturing. Visit Sunseeker Careers for more information.
