A new group of Red Funnel apprentices started this week!

All News Events Monday, 7th August 2017

After a very successful first apprenticeship, we now have a new group starting fresh to become able seafarers.

Daniel, Barry, Nicole and Jack started the training at Red Ensign and at the same time work on the Red Funnel vessels.

This week they are attending the STCW Basic Training Week and will jump in the water, walk through fire, perform resuscitation - luckily on dummies :), and basically learn how to be safe at sea. Next week they will cover Vessel Ropework, anchoring & mooring operations.

By August, next year they will be awarded with the SQA Level 2 Certificate in Maritime Studies for Able Seafarer (Deck).

Regarding the training we offer at Red Ensign a previous Red Funnel apprentice, Jana Zinevica, has said:

'A big thank you to Red Ensign for a rewarding year and an excellent training programme (Deckhand apprenticeship)!

All the instructors had a brilliant approach! Everyone was very supportive, energising, engaging and team focused, and at the same time I received some very professional training and help! I feel I have become more confident and developed a professional approach to my studies and life! Red Ensign provided various trainings in suitable premises, such as Sea Trident (training ship), a simulator room (classroom) and lots of fun in the river Medina (sea survival, rescue boat, and life boat training!) 

Besides an amazing approach from the instructors, I had some excellent help from the management too! I would definitely recommend Red Ensign as a training facility! For me it was perfect from top to bottom! 

Thank you!'

Good luck to them and be sure we will see them on the Red Funnel vessels!
