Congratulations Emma!

6 Feb 2024

Congratulations to Harbour Operative, Emma Maunder, who has recently passed her Apprenticeship, completing her studies and final assessment with a Distinction.

Emma said:

“I’ve really enjoyed the last couple of years completing the Marine Workboat Apprenticeship – maintaining and servicing the moorings, as crew on the Pilot boats and tug, towage jobs and general harbour work. Thank you to all the Cattewater Harbour team for their support, knowledge and encouragement throughout, and especially as I completed the final assessment.”

Captain Richard Allan:

“Emma has excelled throughout her apprenticeship, and to achieve top marks is a great achievement. We look forward to welcoming Emma to the team now as a full time employed member of staff, where her training, skills and ever increasing knowledge of the port and maritime industry will continue.”

This week marks National Apprenticeship Week. The maritime industry particularly lends itself to the work experience, training and qualifications earned through an apprenticeship as they include a mix of practical learning and theoretical study. The Port works with local training provider SeaRegs Training, based in Turnchapel.

Emma concluded:

“I’d recommend an apprenticeship in the maritime industry to anyone! No two days are the same – there’s always something different to do!”

Last year, Emma was also recognised in the Devon and Plymouth Chamber of Commerce’s 30 under 30 list, along with Marine Operations Manager Cameron Hicks.
