Careers At Sea

Free resources for schools

In addition to our Free Careers at Sea Ambassador visits, we have a variety of resources you can access to support your careers advice services.

You can use these to advise people in schools, colleges and youth groups about what working in the Merchant Navy is like and how they can explore the training pathways.
