Some of our recent cadets have been to lots of interesting places, including Amsterdam, Turkey, Malta, Florida, Canada, Massachusetts, Maine, Long Island, Mexico, Brazil, Santos, Sao Paolo and South Africa!
If you’re thinking about going to university or college to get a higher education qualification, think about a career at sea.  Not only are all your tuition fees paid for and you get a monthly cash allowance, but you’ll also be starting a career that can take you all over the world.
