About this program

Awarded by: Scottish Qualifications Authority trading as SQA

In February 2017 South Tyneside College was awarded FE college of the year and overall FE provider of the year at the prestigious National TES awards. South Shields Marine School has a worldwide reputation for outstanding maritime training. Our first class teaching staff and excellent industry standard facilities allow us to offer some of the best maritime training in the world. We offer cadet programmes, professional industry training, off-shore and safety training to international shipping and maritime industries. We are proud to be a world-renowned centre of excellence for marine education and training. Established in 1861, we offer programmes across the whole spectrum of marine education and nautical sciences, including navigation, operations, marine and electrical engineering, communications and catering. We have a renowned reputation for quality, which has been underpinned by outstanding facilities and significant annual capital investment. Our specialist teaching resources are amongst the best in the world for marine and nautical training. Our knowledgeable, professional team ensures that all your marine personnel will receive an unrivalled training experience. We cater for all levels of education and training from Deck, Engine and ET Rating, maritime apprenticeships, all officer trainee programmes through to Senior Officer Certification and up to an honour degree level. We also provide an extensive range of short courses for the marine, offshore and leisure markets. Our education and training offer is backed up by an extensive range of resources that enables South Shields Marine School to provide all your training needs within two locations at the Marine School and the Marine Safety Training Centre. Dr Winterbottom Hall is our purpose-built accommodation block. It is located on the College site just 50 metres from our main teaching facilities.
This programme is a three year sandwich course that has been designed to enable marine cadets to achieve the academic standard necessary for the qualification of HND in Marine Engineering and the STCW approved certificate as Chief Engineer Officer.
The main deliverable objective of this award is to provide the academic or underpinning knowledge required by practicing Marine Engineer officers within today’s maritime industries. The programme strategy mirrors the established and accepted practice of integrating the practical and theoretical elements to provide a programme that corresponds with existing engineering training programmes.
The initial knowledge and skills delivered within part 1 will enable the range of knowledge anticipated at entry to be developed to allow application of skills on-board ship. This knowledge will be developed within the part 2 modules delivered in the final year. The college based programmes are fully integrated with industrial or sea based training that meet the industry’s requirements for a structured and phased training scheme. During the sea phases students complete a sea phase record book of practical training undertaken on-board.
