Supporting Seafarers Day 2016 saw the launch of a new £2.5m maritime training academy to deliver skills and training for the Liverpool City Region and beyond.

The official launch of Port Academy Liverpool (PAL) involved some 200 guests from across the UK representing the maritime industry, Merchant Navy, Royal Navy – both past and present – and charitable trusts.

We are proud to be situated within the historic docklands of Bootle and just a stone’s throw from the thriving Port of Liverpool.

Firmly rooted in the development opportunities arising from the port expansion we provide a range of courses and enrichment opportunities from 14 years and up supporting roles connected to the maritime supply chain.

Our links with industry across the Liverpool City Region and beyond reinforce the importance we place on employers through good communication, collaboration and critical thinking. Only by working with industry can we ensure that we bridge the skills gap and provide our students with the best possible chance of entering the job market.
