Part of our role is to promote better understanding of the importance of skills to the success of the maritime sector. We have therefore contributed to a number of Government consultations, and we are currently supporting the work of Maritime UK which set up a People and Skills Working Group to take forward the nine skills and education recommendations from the Maritime Growth Study. Bill Walworth, MSA Chairman, chairs the Working Group. You can read more about its work here.
The Maritime Skills Alliance is very pleased with the Government’s announcements this week about the Maritime Skills Commission.
Chairman Bill Walworth said: “This is really good news. The Government has taken on to the next stage the ambitions it set in its Maritime 2050 strategy, so we can start turning those ambitions into real value.
I’m also very pleased to see the work of the MSA recognised in a commitment that we will be part of the small group charged with shaping the Commission.
