Mersey Maritime and the Merchant Navy Training Board (MNTB) is to host an event in September that will consider the future of UK seafarers.
Re-thinking the Rating will consider a number of challenges and opportunities, including the recruitment of more women into the maritime sector, as well as the skills and aptitudes required to pursue a career in shipping in the 21st century.
Delegates will be invited to consider the challenges of recruiting, actions to attract more companies and upcoming plans to clarify career paths.
The event will take place on Thursday, September 13, at Liverpool Town Hall and will run from 11am to 3pm. This will be followed by the press launch of the Women in Maritime Charter.
If you are interested in attending or making a contribution to the event, please get in touch with Mark Burgess at the Merchant Navy Training Board at email@example.com
