Marine Engineering pre-apprenticeship and work readiness courses available this September

Paragon Skills are offering students the opportunity to complete pre-apprenticeship and work readiness courses this September.

Students will get the chance to develop practical skills in their well equipped workshops and get people ready for an apprenticeship. The focus of the course is about taking the first steps into the workplace, helping to build student's confidence and give them the edge to match young people with suitable employers in the area.

Some of the Marine Skills that will be covered:

* Carrying out engineering activities
* Metal & woodworking skills
* Health & safety in the workplace
* Introduction to careers in the workplace
* Introduction to using engineering tools
* Introduction to vessel engineering
* Introduction to vessel stability
* Using teamwork skills

It's not all about the workshop - as part of this course students will also get the opportunity to complete:
* Emergency First Aid
* Powerboat Level 1
* Sailing for Beginners

The courses start in September and last for 6 months (level 1) or 12 months (level 2).

Anyone interested in finding out more will be invited in for an assessment and information session at either the Bournemouth or Fareham Paragon centres.
