RNLI-receives-award-for-leading-apprenticeship-programme

Byline: The Worshipful Company of Shipwrights recently recognised the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) for engineering a leading apprenticeship programme.
Page Content: The Charity that saves lives at sea, won the award which honours organisations from across the UK marine industry for the quality of training and support apprentices receive. This year employers including Berthon, Babcock Marine, Pendennis, Sunseeker and Cammell Laird were all shortlisted so the RNLI is extremely proud to have won.

The RNLI’s apprenticeship roles have been recognised for providing the specialist skills the charity needs at its Inshore Lifeboat Centre (ILC) and, as the charity brings all-weather lifeboat production and maintenance in-house for the first time, at its new All-weather Lifeboat Centre (ALC).

RNLI Apprenticeship Manager Lynne Mason said

“Awards like these provide confidence in our future ambition to be a world-class centre of engineering excellence. Our 15 apprentices from across the ALC, ILC and SAR Composites will be playing a huge part in lifeboat manufacturing and maintenance, providing the best possible lifeboats to help protect our volunteer crew when they risk their lives at sea to save others.”

David Brook, Engineering and Asset Management Director added:

“It is an unexpected surprise but it is great to have won such an award. Four of our apprentices were recently shortlisted for the Queens Silver Medal which is awarded by the Worshipful Company of Shipwrights. Although our apprentices narrowly missed going through to the final stage of the award process, the feedback they gave about us as an employer, and how we look after them has resulted in us receiving this fantastic recognition.”
