The Pro Crew campaign continued on Wednesday 13th March with an eleventh visit to a half-day career fair at De La Salle College in Birgu, up the hill from the Birgu Marina, home to Malta’s finest super yacht facility. De La Salle College is a Church secondary school and the fair was targeted mainly at 15 and 16 who are about the finish their compulsory school years and are in the process of choosing their future career path.
The day kicked off with an information session for year 11 students in which Ing Godwin Caruana assisted by Mr Julian Izzo spoke about career opportunites in the sector. An informative video highlighted work on super yacths. Being close to the Birgu Marina, students could relate the information given to them to the yacthing activity taking place in the majestic Grand Harbour Marina, one kilometre down the road. Around a hundred students attended this interactive information session.
The session continued at the ProCrew information stand where various students and staff stopped over asking about the ProCrew courses. Godwin and Julian were more than happy to provide more information about opportunities in the local and international maritime small vessel industry.
