UKSA can offer routes straight into maritime industry work. We can create
courses adapted to every student to give them the best possible chance in the
future. Lucy Campbell is currently completing the UKSA’s Professional Yacht
Cadetship and has secured a place in the superyacht industry as part of her
sandwich year. Lucy shares her experiences with us:

“Having completed the first phase of the UKSA Professional Yacht Cadetship, I
have covered various aspects of yachting and yacht maintenance such as my
Yachtmaster theory and practical, radar, sail and fiberglass repair, and engine
maintenance.

I chose UKSA because it ran the Cadetship which was the perfect course for me
as it has now given me the opportunity to turn what I have been doing all my
life as a hobby, into a career. I’m really enjoying working in the superyacht
industry as part of my sandwich year and I will use this experience as a
pathway into roles in the future.

This programme has given me the hands-on experience and knowledge
necessary to gain entry level qualifications as well as preparing me for the roles
and tasks of a junior deckhand. I have enhanced my understanding of
navigation, safety and communications whilst gaining experience and miles on
36-65ft yachts.”
