Marine apprenticeships are at the forefront of innovation, pioneering new technologies, and world-renowned craftmanship. We have over 20 years’ of experience in delivering award winning training.

We have 65% of our learners achieve a merit or distinction and can guarantee that every learner who completes their programme will pass.


Progress with a marine apprenticeship

We have seen apprenticeships become a respected and exciting way to help thousands of individuals and businesses get where they want to be. Marine apprenticeships allow individuals to join this exciting industry or upskill if they are already a part of it and bring new ideas to keep the industry innovating.

The latest apprenticeship programmes have been designed in association with the UK’s leading marine organisations including Sunseeker, Princess Yachts, The Pioneer Sailing Trust, and the RNLI.

At Paragon Skills we offer intermediate and advanced level apprenticeships in the boat building & marine sector.

All these programmes are taught in your workplace, via remote sessions and from our dedicated training facility in Bournemouth.
