Following on from the successes of CMN’s own Marine Academy, which seeks to create employment and career opportunities for young people into marine sector businesses, the Channel Marine Academy project is an EU Interreg IVa initiative, funded by the European regional Development Fund and brings together 6 French and British partners and led by Cornwall Marine Network, to collaborate on a wide range of themes, such as employment and training in marine industries. This combines two very different approaches, firstly, by working with companies with specific needs in terms of competency and secondly by raising the awareness and developing the employability of young people, school leavers, or those integrating the job market, who often lack information about the careers available in their region.
The development of occupations, competency requirements, tomorrow's recruitment sectors and employment perspectives are all subjects that are addressed within the scope of Channel Marine Academy.
Aim of the EU Interreg IVa (Manche/Channel) Programme: The programme aims at enhancing the emergence of an area of common citizenship, a sense of belonging to a cross-border area and a specific identity, supporting tangible and sustainable co-operation, within the three-way perspective of innovation and competitiveness, social cohesion and sustainable development.
