Watermota support to grow facilities at South Devon College Marine AcademyJanuary 25, 2023
Working in partnership with South Devon Marine Academy, we are excited to introduce our apprentice, Zak, who has joined our service department.
South Devon College Marine Academy is based at Premier Marina’s new £75 million development of Noss-on-Dart Marina on the banks of the River Dart. From these new premises, the Academy will continue to build its reputation as a maritime centre of excellence.
The Academy is an approved training centre for The Royal Yachting Association (RYA), full members of British Marine and The Institute for Outdoor Learning (IOL), and an accredited centre for City & Guilds, EAL Awards, and the University of Plymouth.
The College works in partnership with Princess Yachts to deliver a range of apprenticeship opportunities. The partnership has also provided a dedicated workshop that houses one of Princess’ V40 hulls, allowing students to learn in the classroom using real-world products, techniques, and application of theory.
