Cockwells Launches Boatbuilding Academy

Cornwall-based boat and custom super yacht tender builder Cockwells has launched The Cockwells Academy. Set up in conjunction with Falmouth Marine School, The Cockwells Academy is aimed primarily at students who have taken GCSEs this summer. It involves enrolling on a full-time course at Falmouth Marine School and attending specific work-experience days and masterclasses at the company’s Mylor Creek Boatyard for one academic year.


“Up to ten applicants will be selected to benefit from real-time work experience as well as access to our highly skilled craftsmen and elements the boatbuilding process that is may not be possible for them to encounter during their studies at college, ” explained Cockwells’ Training Manager, Jonny Mills.


Managing Director Dave Cockwell added, “This collaboration is a win-win situation. It creates a pipeline of talented individuals who are passionate about the industry, which, in turn, empowers us to offer them career opportunities.”
