Princess Yachts apprentices are to be taught at South Devon College

INDUSTRY DATABASE

PRINCESS YACHTS INTERNATIONAL PLC

The new Princess Yachts Learning Academy has officially opened at South Devon College.

The development follows on from a recent partnership between the college and the boatbuilder and will allow apprentices to be taught at the college while gaining a realistic experience working with the same products and systems that the company uses.

The new workshop is 90m² and will provide real life skills training and allow apprentices to practice their areas of specialism in relation to their individual apprenticeship.

Apprentices will work on a Princess V40 hull, built especially for the academy.

To complement the newly opened workshop, there is also a new Princess Yachts classroom in the college’s £17m Hi Tech and Digital Centre.

Realistic experience

Apprentices will receive on and off-water activities with exposure to each of the roles involved in building luxury yachts.

The week will be structured to follow Princess Yachts’ working hours to provide a realistic work experience, with the college providing a coach to pick up apprentices from Princess Yachts’ Coypool base at 7am, returning to the site at 5pm.

In addition to their apprenticeship qualifications, each apprentice will receive the Open Awards Exploring Maritime Skills qualification, as well as a range of additional transferable skills.

The ribbon on the new workshop was cut by chief operating officer of Princess Yachts, Matt Pears.
