My background is a very practical one, I have always learnt better by doing so my teaching methods follow this I encourage people to try and figure a-lot out.
I enjoy working through solutions with my students rather than just explaining something.
After school I studied at a maritime college to gain a level 3 in Marine Engineering, after which i moved onto a time served apprenticeship at a world class ship repair yard gaining a level 3&4 in Marine Engineering.
Now I have decided to go away and join the Merchant Navy, but doing this along side studying for a HND & Foundation degree in Marine Engineering.
As a highly motivated and hardworking individual, I spent two years completing my technical certificates, to then move directly onto a time served apprenticeship at a world class ship repair yard. I achieved excellent grades throughout my studies and, I am now working to further the skills I have acquired by working in a career at sea. As a confident young enthusiastic marine engineer, I am looking forward to challenges, being out of my comfort zone and pride myself on taking initiative. Engineering is my passion and I aim to build a successful career, with the long-term aspiration of becoming a chief engineer.
I am currently a sponsored cadet with MEF managed by Chiltern Maritime in my third phase of the cadetship studying towards my HND.

Relevant Work History
Marine engineering cadet
September 2017 - Present MEF - Chiltern managed
I have been lucky enough to get myself a sponsored cadetship with MEF to become an engineering officer, I am currently in the third phase of my cadetship studying and training for my HND.
We study in this phase a wide variety of subjects covering - marine vessel engineering systems, marine control operations, engineering dynamics, mathematics for seafarers, electrical principles for seafarers, and workshop in the workshop we cover hand fitting, turning, welding fabrication and fitting.
Although already gaining a few of my short course certificates before, we get to do all of these courses which are - personal survival techniques, elementary first aid, fire prevention & fire fighting, designated security duties, enclosed space entry, personal safety & social responsibilities, tanker fire fighting.
September 2014 - July 2017 A&P Falmouth ship repair dry docks
Undertaking tasks that vary from multi million pound refits to basic maintenance, in my time at A&P I have been lucky enough to have been on some incredible projects, Engine overhauls/refits, Propulsion overhauls/surveys down to pump and pipework overhauls and maintenance, having this variety of work has allowed me to be able to develop myself in all areas of marine engineering and excel as a real team player bringing forward enthusiasm to all jobs and always looking for ideas.
During my apprenticeship I spent 4 months in the machine shop using Lathes, Mills, Pillar drills, Vertical borer’s, at one period we had a ship lay up with us for 3 months because they did not have the crew to run it so they employed A&P to watch keep the ship for this period, in this time I got some really good experience learning the different ships computers and systems and also taking on different shift patterns with watchkeeping duties.
I have also been lucky enough to be able to go to sea with a handful of ships after refits in a period of sea trials this has sometimes included running in new rebuilt engines or even doing watches to ensure the safe running of all work undertaken by A&P Falmouth.
May 2013 - May 2014 Sal Diving company
During my time at college I got myself a job working with a diving company that had just bought a old navy fleet tender that they were converting into a commercial dive vessel, I worked for the dive company but alongside Fowey harbour commissioners we had major hull reconstruction to undertake and overhauling almost everything on the ship.
