The training programmes are based on either a Foundation Degree or HNC. Entry requirements vary according to the programme followed, together with the expectations of the University or Further Education college the shore training is to be undertaken at.
The sponsorship provided by SSTG includes the necessary sea service with up to 12 months training being undertaken on board a variety of vessels, all of your tuition fees paid and a personal monthly training allowance.
Pursuing a career at sea provides a wide range of experiences, enabling you to train for life and not just a career at sea.
Whilst some individuals will continue to serve at sea, many will come ashore at a relatively young age and take up one of the numerous maritime roles ashore that are available where your experience of serving at sea is invaluable.
