Maritime Training and employment

Education is one of the mainstays of the economy. The skills that are needed for all of the activities in the maritime industries take in the vast panoply of options in formal education – from the CAP (national vocational certiἀcate) to the Doctorate – and then on to continuous education. Colleges, training centres and educational institutions, together with their associated research facilities and laboratories, give young people and professionals alike the chance to acquire essential knowledge, a fundamental element in coping with the advances taking place in technology, tools, materials and processes.

These two aspects of education are inseparable from the transmission of expertise which then continues throughout a career in a company or industry.

Many maritime organisations are engaged in promoting the occupations of the sector. In particular there was the release in September 2013 of the “Kit 

100% Océan” and its Livret Lycée-Métiers de la Mer (Occupations of the Sea) by the Maud Fontenoy Foundation – in collaboration with the Cluster and the CNRS – which will expose school pupils to career paths in maritime professions they may not have considered before. This Kit follows and reinforces the initiative taken by bodies such as the IFM or the Oceanographic Institute to devote pages on their websites to maritime training courses and jobs. www.ifmer.org

For the shipping industry, Campus Naval France was set up in October 2012 to unite and coordinate the various public and private bodies of formal and continuing education in engineering. But the great news is the operation “Enseigner la mer” (Teaching the Sea) launched by the Education Department which introduces the sea and maritime affairs into all primary and secondary education programmes. A revolution !

 

Former des marins

L’Ecole navale: The naval graduate college (Grande école de la mer) has trained all ofἀcers of the French Navy in Brest for 180 years. Benefiting from its perfect setting and purpose-built infrastructures, the college offers advanced theoretical and practical teaching, open to students from abroad, in three main ἀelds of education:

human sciences and military training, seamanship and training in the various branches of engineering. Depending on the course selected, the collegeenables students to obtain qualifications up to Masters level (bac + 5): ingénieur de l’école navale or master professionnel.

Ecole Nationale Supérieur Maritime (ENSM)

The National Maritime College of France (ENSM) trains Ofἀcers of the French merchant marine and around thirty students from foreign countries. In 2012/2013, 1,000 students were admitted.The ENSM is a Nautical Institute and IMCA accredited DP center.The Sea Rescue Training Center of ENSM, called CESAME and located in Saint-Malo, trains seafarers, fishermen, ocean race sailors (ISAF, International Sailing Federation) and young apprentices in the procedures for abandoning ship, survival at sea and sea rescue, in accordance with the STCW convention. In 2013, ENSM registered more than 2,000 trainees.

 
 

DCI-NAVFCO, a naval component of Défense Conseil International, transfers the expertise of the French Navy to foreign navies through technical and operational training, instruction and assistance especially in the field of maritime security and safety.

The creation of NavOcéan, a joint venture with the Chantiers Piriou, led in September 2013 to the launch of the Almak, a training vessel for the cadets of foreign navies, undoubtedly a model of interest to other sectors for acclimatizing professionals to life at sea.

 

L’école de voile des Glénans

Glenans sailing school, the first of its kind in Europe, was established in 1947 in the Glenan group of islands off the coast of Brittany. For many years it has been recognised as the world leader in sailing instruction and caters for more than 15,000 students and instructors every year.

Cruisers, catamarans, dinghies, wind and kite surfing, Glenans offers training courses for everyone from beginners to seasoned sailors. The courses are held at 6 sailing bases (3 in Brittany, 2 in the Mediterranean and 1 in Ireland). In cruising, Glenans also holds training courses in the West Indies, Greece, Italy and Croatia. It is a charitable organisation under Law 1901 and approved by the Ministry for Sport.
