National Maritime Big Skills Debate – 8 November 2017, Maritime Greenwich

January 12, 2018

The debate explored how the maritime sector currently collaborates to deliver maritime training that best supports business succession planning and challenged existing UK maritime training provision and funding streams. It also considered how the national ‘skills gap’ discussion could be simplified to encourage wider participation and collaboration from across the UK maritime cluster.

Representations were made from an expert panel from across the UK maritime cluster. Our appreciation and thanks to;

  • Andrew Bull, Headmaster – The London Nautical School (Chair)
  • Andrew Bowen, Head of Technical – Engineering and IT Department, DP World London Gateway
  • Tony Graham, Chairman – The UK Naval Engineering Science and Technology Forum (UKNEST)
  • Peter Aylott, Chairman, Education and Training – The Honourable Company of Master Mariners (HCMM)
  • Sezen Zeki, Managing Director, Jobs in Maritime
  • James Burr, Head of Human Resources – MBNA Thames Clippers
  • Dr Christopher Ware, MA Programme lead International Maritime Policy, Greenwich Maritime Centre
  • Ewan Shinton, Operations Director – UKSA

This event was delivered in partnership with Jobs in Maritime, the Greenwich Maritime Centre (GMC), Lloyds Maritime Academy and the National Maritime Training Centre.
