Read about the experiences of SSTG cadets as they progress through their training and enter into full service at sea.
“We’re learning a lot from the very supportive tutors who have prepared us with a good understanding of the basics for our sea phases of the course.”
“The crew onboard the ships could not have been more helpful to me.”
“It is a life experience you wouldn’t get in a shore job.”
Conversation with George Ineson
