New Secretary Appointed
David Tournay to succeed Iain Mackinnon
The Maritime Skills Alliance is delighted to announce that David Tournay has agreed to become Secretary to the MSA on the retirement of Iain Mackinnon on 31 March 2022.
David has worked in the vocational learning field for nearly 30 years, working across a diverse range of industry sectors from aviation and hospitality to jewellery making and archaeology.
His work has focused on the design of qualifications, implementing labour market studies and working with employers and education providers to find the best approach to programme implementation and to navigate a pathway through the regulation and control.
He cut his maritime teeth as a long term trustee of the Pioneer Sailing Trust, an Essex-based charity that provides sail training and boat building apprenticeships for local young people. This led to involvement in the development of a range of specialist marine programmes and apprenticeships with British Marine.
