Fowey Harbour


Capt Tim Jones, of Fowey Harbour Commissioners is delighted to have taken on teenager Matt as a marine engineer apprentice.

He said: “Matt will gain a broad range of experience and means we will be able to maintain our skills base. Marine engineering is a highly specialist skill and the average age of our workforce is in the 40s. So this scheme generates new young blood into the business. I also believe it is paramount to give today’s youngsters these opportunities that they need.”

Matt, 16, from St Austell, is thrilled to have acquired an Apprenticeship with the Harbour Commissioners within weeks of leaving Poltair School. He said: “My dad’s a fisherman and I’ve always wanted to work around boats. It’s brilliant to have had the interview and been accepted. My family are really pleased. It means I can get first-hand experience and gain my City and Guild qualifications in marine engineering, and get paid for it.”

* This Apprenticeship solution was originally designed and delivered by Cornwall Marine Network (CMN). Based on the success of this model, CMN developed and brought to market the Cornwall Apprenticeship Agency as a subsidiary.
