The drive to promote the Pro Crew courses continued with a visit to St Theresa College Secondary School at Mrieħel, on Friday 8th March. Our team organised an information session for 15 and 16 year-old students at the school.
During this tenth information session Ing Godwin Caruana assisted by Mr Julian Izzo delivered a presentation including a short video highlighting the carreer opportunities for future learners who will be taking up ProCrew courses. Information was provided about the various courses being offered and how they lead to the various career opportunities in the maritime sector, particularly the Small Vessel Deck Officers, Hospitality Stewards, and Marine Engineering routes. Information was also given about the increasing job opportunities resulting from the expanding super yacht activity in Maltese marinas.
Around fifty students attended this information session. Both during and after the presentation several students asked MCAST representatives various follow-up questions, showing that information about the maritime sector and the super yacht area in particular, is sometimes lacking. These ProCrew information sessions are going a long way in filling this void.
