South Devon College's Marine Academy has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Institut Nautique de Bretagne (INB) in France to broaden its students’ learning.

The agreement will create project opportunities for students of FdSc Yacht Operations and Marine Technologies based at the academy’s site at Noss-on-the-Dart.

Foreign exchange

Students from South Devon Marine Academy (SDMA) will also be able to meet and work with overseas students at the INB headquarters in Concarneau. Established in 1965 the training centre is intended for young people keen to develop their skills in the boating industry.

A reciprocal arrangement will see SDMA welcome an increased number of overseas students to the UK to work on a variety of boat crafts.

Mayflower project

SDMA students have also been showcasing their talents at Britannia Royal Naval College in Dartmouth where they have been presenting work from their ongoing Mayflower 400 project.

Due for completion by 2020, the project challenges students to produce the half-hull of a 3m scale replica of the Mayflower using historical pictures as guidance.

To mark the 400th anniversary of the original Mayflower ship departing from Dartmouth, the model vessel will be on display during the celebrations for the future event, before finding its permanent home at the nearby Dartmouth Museum.
