“We are determined to find out what the industry really thinks about these key issues, and invite those at every level to spend time completing the short questionnaire. The IMarEST will be publishing the results, and early indications will also be made available to those participating in our skills gap roundtable. Providing competent and well -trained cadets is of paramount importance to the sector going forward.” Bob Maxwell, BSM Singapore.

Key personnel from leading maritime organisations within the sector will create a fruitful discussion on topics such as: how big the issue is, what the impact on shipping companies will be, what training is lacking, whether the quality of newly qualified crew is having an impact on the sector, and how the sector can attract talent.

“We have been delighted by the response that we have received so far which highlights the value of pulling a leading list of industry leaders together to support the next generation of marine professionals. We hope the discussion will provide some recommendations on how reduce the perceived gap between education/training and the provision of industry-ready cadets.” David Kelly, IMarEST’s Director of Asia-Pacific.

The skills gap ‘invitation-only’ round table will take place in October 2016 in Singapore and has already attracted representatives of key organisations who between them cover shipping, naval and defence, academia and training.
