The Maritime Skills Alliance designs and promotes qualifications and apprenticeships for the UK’s maritime sector. We have developed a suite of interlocking standards and qualifications – MSQs, “Maritime Studies Qualifications” - which enable employees to progress both within their specialism and between sectors.
You can find a complete and regularly updated list of all our Units and Qualifications on the Qualifications page.

The MSA is not-for-profit (a Company Limited by Guarantee - company number 7939255), funded by its members.
In a blog for Maritime UK, Iain Mackinnon, Secretary to the Maritime Skills Alliance, argues that we "need to make the case for both immigration and investment in home-grown talent". Iain is also Secretary to Maritime UK's People and Skills Forum.
