Specifically, the lessons that are developed by the Institute of Shipbrokers, have as a goal to provide an insight of the maritime sector and the importance of shipping.
Thousands of pupils across the UK will be informed about the shipping sector and may be inspired to follow a maritime career.
As Maritime Minister Nusrat Ghani noted
Shipping is crucial to the vitality of the UK – bringing in the food and goods we buy as well as energy to power our homes.
In addition, Julie Lithgow, Director of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, added that 'the Institute has, for more than 100 years, inspired new generations to develop their knowledge of the commercial maritime world, albeit young people at the start of their professional careers.'
The funding provided in favour of student's knowledge, reflects the government's commitment to deliver the recommendations laid out in Maritime 2050.
