Seafarer Cadet Review


On Thursday 24 June the Commission released the Seafarer Cadet Review Report and Recommendations. A dissemination webinar was held Wednesday 30 June and the report and webinar recording can be viewed below.

The Seafarer Cadet Review was led by Brian Johnson, CEO, Maritime and Coastguard Agency and a Working Group of Commissioners was formed including:

The group was established because numbers of UK Merchant Navy officers being trained employed has seen a steady decline over several decades. Refreshing the seafarer training system in the UK will allow the well-regarded UK maritime training sector to adapt to the pace of change required and to strengthen its position in the international education arena..

The Review came at a request from the Maritime Minister in the MSC Tasking Letter. A Terms of Reference was been established for the Review and can be read here.

We will continue to update this page with next steps.
