L3 Boatbuilding Apprenticeship

In 2023, we joined forces with the Cornwall Marine Network to offer a brand new City & Guilds L3 Boatbuilding Apprenticeship Scheme. It is the only one of its kind in the Duchy as it is offered in the workplace and tailored to business needs.

Aimed at learners aged 16 and above who would like to gain the practical knowledge and skills required to embark upon a rewarding career in boatbuilding, this apprenticeship not only offers a valuable qualification but also the opportunity to develop transferable skills that are highly valued by employers.


This qualification is designed to introduce Apprentices to the full range of career opportunities that are available to them within the wider boatbuilding and marine sector, from project manager, lecturer, assessor and marine/electrical engineer, to naval architect, paint sprayer, laminator, joiner or boatyard operative.


We are currently recruiting for our next cohort of apprentices to start in September 2024.
