Pendennis to take on apprentices this summer

ADVERTISEMENT

The application period for the next crop of apprentices at Pendennis shipyard in England has opened. The shipyard, which builds and refits luxury yachts in Falmouth, will accept more than 20 new apprentices for its four-year program in general shipyard crafts, including joinery/cabinet making, fabrication/welding, engineering and electrical. A three-year surface finishing apprenticeship also begins this summer.

Applicants must be aged 16 to 19, and will spend the first year taking classes at Cornwall

College. The final three years is based at Pendennis Shipyard studying skills in specialist trade areas, combined with off-the-job training.

The yard, which employs more than 370 craftsmen and support staff, began the apprenticeships in 1998 when it faced a shortage of skilled workers.
