Sunseeker Skills Academy marks one-year anniversary

Sunseeker International has celebrated the one-year anniversary of its Sunseeker Skills Academy.

The Academy was launched as a training programme to address a national skills shortage and has been developed in partnership with Bournemouth and Poole College.

The initiative introduces aspiring boatbuilders to five boatbuilding specialisms over 15 months.

A structured 12-week training curriculum is delivered by both the college and Sunseeker. Upon completion of the training course, newly qualified boatbuilders integrate into the shipyards where they receive further practical training and guidance.

“The Sunseeker Skills Academy stands as a testament to our commitment to nurturing talent and advancing excellence in boatbuilding,” said Andrea Frabetti, Sunseeker CEO. “Our partnership with Bournemouth and Poole College has not only empowered over 100 newly trained employees but has also significantly enhanced shipyard productivity and efficiency.”

He added: “The confidence and skills displayed by our trainee employees underscore the effectiveness of the Sunseeker Skills Academy in preparing individuals for the rigors of the boatbuilding industry.

“We are immensely proud of their achievements and grateful to the lecturers and staff whose dedication has made this program a resounding success.”
