Cadet Training in the British Merchant Navy with the SSTG.

The Ship Safe Training Group (SSTG) provides the opportunity to train in one of three specialised maritime cadetships that lead to a rewarding career at sea as an officer in the British Merchant Navy – and also the option to work ashore. You will enjoy a unique way of life with the opportunity to experience travelling across the world.
You will mix study at a nautical college in the UK with practical hands-on training periods working on board ship at sea.

Our training programmes are highly respected and provide you with internationally recognised qualifications. You will benefit from gaining real responsibility whilst working on technologically advanced vessels and will develop personal skills that will enable you to transfer to a variety of careers worldwide.

As a sponsored cadet all of your study fees and expenses will be paid and you will receive a training allowance from the shipping company who is sponsoring you.
