Modelling New DeliveryAs a leading provider of maritime education and practical training the National Maritime Training Centre located at Gravesend, Kent, provides up to date equipment and expert training using its dedicated specialist classrooms and facilities. From our facilities we are able to provide business and local communities with services that include fire training, a Thameside jetty, occupational health and safety, specialist refrigeration training, retail and business solutions. The National Maritime Training Centre offers internationally recognised transferable and sustainable shore side and seafaring skills and programmes including access to accredited distance learning, sector specific business support, maritime incubation and recruitment services. We are just starting out on this phase of our delivery and as part of our continued commitment to improving the services that we deliver and engaging with employers and public sector stakeholders we are to establish a National Maritime Training Centre 'Business Advisory Board' and to pilot a London and South East National Maritime Development networking group. The aim of the board and development group is to help us to drive workforce development to ensure that we best equip those working directly or indirectly within the maritime sector with the competencies that business requires and to address the labour and skills supply issues of priority sectors.
