Dedicated to marine apprentices, young shipwrights as well as marine graduates, the 2012 edition of Shipwrights Lecture will be held on Wednesday 17th October 2012 at the Turner Sims Hall, University of Southampton.
The annual lecture invites industry leaders from the leisure marine sector to inform and inspire young apprentices, shipwrights and graduates about the breadth, opportunities and career paths available in the UK‘s unique and dynamic marine industry.
The Worshipful Company of Shipwrights, in conjunction with the University of Southampton held the first Shipwrights Lecture in 2011. The event attracted over 300 delegates including apprentices from a host of well known British boatbuilders including Princess, Sunseeker, Pendennis, Fairline, Discovery Yachts, SYS, Berthon, Lyme Regis Boat Building Academy and Rustler Yachts. Training providers, universities, colleges and industry bodies including the British Marine Federation all attended last year’s inaugural lecture and will be supporting the 2012 lecture.
The aim of the Shipwrights Lecture is to awaken apprentices to the opportunities in the immensely wide-ranging marine industry and to inform and inspire them of the careers that can develop from learning skills in laminating, wiring, joinery and outfitting to design, naval architecture and management. Attendance is free for apprentices nominated by their employers and young people under the age of 25 who are studying in the marine sector. Each apprentice receives a certificate of attendance.
