AHOY Apprentices pass Powerboat course
A big congratulations to our two apprentices who recently passed their RYA Powerboat Intermediate Course!
The course takes two days to complete and is aimed at those who are wanting to drive larger and more powerful boats. The content of the course included planning a day cruise, boat preparation, boat handling, pilotage, passage making and what to do in the instance of a man overboard.
With all those skills combined, the apprentices are now able to plan and execute short coastal passages by day. An amazing achievement for both of these young people who can always be seen working hard around the centre and who face every challenge with a positive and can-do attitude.
Our Apprenticeship programme aims to build self-esteem and confidence in young people and provide them with the necessary transferable skills that are vital to finding employment – acting as a great pathway to employment. The training that we deliver offers the opportunity to gain internationally recognised qualifications plus an apprenticeship salary in a supportive, inclusive environment.
Every donation we recieve enables us to continue helping young people in gaining qualifications, improving their transferable employable skills, putting them on a pathway to employment!
Your donation can have a positive impact on a young person’s future, starting today.
