Open Days at SCT - Tuesday 31st May and 21st June 2022.

Want to be a fisherman?

31 May and 21 June from 10.00 
Please call in at SCT Training HUB in Newlyn.

Both Open Days will give anyone of any age with an interest in becoming a fisherman a fantastic opportunity to meet and talk directly with istructors and skippers from Newlyn.

You will have the opportunity to explore the different routes into a career in fishing including what qualifications you need, finding work and the different roles within the industry. Our experienced Instructors and some local Skippers will be on hand to answer any questions you might have.

Programme for the Day:

  • 10:30 Welcome and Introduction
  • 11:00 Newlyn Harbour Tour with Andy Wheeler
  • 11:30 Routes in working on fishing boats
  • 12.00 Knots & Ropes Workshop with Freddie Bates
  • 1:00 Refreshments and meet local skippers

These events are part of the recruitment and build up to the 3-week introduction to commercial fishing courses running in July, but will also serve as early taster days for the upcoming fishing apprenticeship. SCT want to show that there are routes into working on fishing vessels and to let people know what qualifications we can offer.

SCT have been working alongside careers advisors to notify them of these events, so will be specifically targeting school leaver age not just people who are already working. As part of the taster days, we are trying to make sure we get some younger fishermen involved, to help build discussion and answer any questions.

Commercial fishing is an incredibly rewarding way to earn a living - and, as a bonus, experience life at sea with all that it has to offer.
