Maritime Apprentice Programme


It can be diffidult for the organisation's apprentices to maintain focus during a busy day at work with production and operations.

How do you guarantee:

  • That they learn everything they need to know?
  • That the talented apprentices are challenged?
  • That there is time and resources left to take care of the apprentices who need it?

Highly qualified employees is a major competition parameter along with order intake and well-functioning products. Your organisation benefits from an active partnership in The Apprentice Programme as it plays a part in securing talented, skilled labour with a minimum usage of the organisation's resources.


The purpose of The Apprentice Programme is:

  • Contribute to educating both skilled and more apprentices
  • Optimise the apprentice education programmes through close dialogue with organisations/vocational schools
  • Develop shared apprentice programmes between organisations
  • Develop rotation systems and arrange apprentice exchanges between organisations
  • Increase the intake of more talented young people to the maritime industry
  • Strengthen the image of the maritime vocational educations
  • Maintain and provide mentor's assistance to the organisation's apprentices
  • Brand the care
    er options in the maritime industry

The maritime education programme was established in 2014 based on the following:

  • Lack of qualified labour
  • Investment in the future
  • Wish for taking social responsibility
  • Develop better apprenticeships


Annual subscription DKK 15,000 ex VAT together with a fee for each apprentice, which will be calculated once a year and is valid in one calender year at a time depending on the number of partners and apprentices.
