Have your say

STUDENTS from Portsmouth and beyond are being encouraged to sign up for a Yachting Cadetship.

Isle of Wight-based youth charity UKSA carries out maritime training and still has 12 places left to fill on its Yachting Cadetship.

It is a structured three-year apprenticeship including a foundation degree in Operational Yacht Science with Plymouth University.

Training begins in October and allows students to earn while they learn and train for a lucrative career on superyachts.

Nine of the places are part funded via bursaries from the UK’s maritime charities, Trinity House and Seafarers UK.

UKSA cadetship manager, Emma Baggett, said: ‘These bursaries are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the right candidates and geared towards MCA Officer of the Watch qualification.’
