IBTC Lowestoft in partnership with National Historic Ships UK has launched the Coastal Communities Funded ‘SEA Grants Scheme’. The scheme is legacy of the Shipshape East Anglia project and is made of two parts:
The Bursary Scheme consists of two bursary placements covering the full cost of a 47 – week long boat building course at IBTC.
The application is open to all the people aged 18 – 25 living in Lowestoft and the East Anglian Region.
The Short Courses Scheme provides a total of £ 10,000 to cover the full cost of 30 short courses in specialist skills. The training sessions are available for people of all ages who own, work or volunteer with a NHS UK registered vessel or a business part of the Shipshape Network.
