Students from Redbridge school on SS Shieldhall

In 2010, we worked in conjunction with Solent Education Business Partnership and the Portsmouth & East Hampshire Education Business Partnership and The University of Southampton, The National Oceanagraphic Centre, City College, Eastleigh College and other local colleges and schools, with regard to bringing groups of students/graduates back to Seawork. 

Seawork 2009 reinvented the Maritime Training & Careers Pavilion and brought in local school children to see what types of jobs are available in the Commercial Marine industry. They had a fun day out which gave them the opportunity to look around the pavilion and talk to recruitment and training organisations about the different careers that are available to them.
