Maritime Update – July 2013

Maritime High School Events

In 2012, students trialled aspects of Maritime Studies at the Australian Maritime and Fisheries Academy (AMFA) at Port Adelaide. They completed safety qualifications that are needed in maritime industries and other national competencies related to this area. We are pleased that in 2014, students from the schools in our region will be able to enrol in a Certificate II in Transport and Logistics (Maritime Operations). This course will be advertised as part of our Regional VET Programs, and will consist of a block training week at the end of terms 1, 2 and 3, followed by a voyage in the term 3 school holidays on the sail training vessel, the “One And All” (right). This course will lead to a range of maritime pathways. Higher level study in these areas can be undertaken at the Australian Maritime College in Tasmania. These include courses in Engineering, Logistics and Seafaring. Visit www.amc.edu.au for more information.

We maintain an interest in the activities at the Australian Submarine Corporation (ASC), in particular with the construction of the first ship that is rapidly taking shape. Staff have visited the construction site and a Le Fevre High staff member (Mr Herman) is currently spending one day per week writing curriculum for teachers at the Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD) Alliance. The focus of this relates to the maths, science and technology involved in such a major project. These curriculum materials will become available later this year on the ASC website.
