Outstanding facilities, expert tutors and an exceptional graduate to employment rate have secured the Fleetwood Nautical Campus an international reputation for excellence. This is underpinned by a 125-year history of providing high quality maritime training to industry and the superior calibre of our students: we have won the Maritime and Coastguard Agency Officer Trainee of the Year Award seven times in ten years.

We have a wide variety of courses at all levels - Levels Explained

Maritime

Regarded as one of the UK’s top nautical institutions, the Fleetwood Nautical Campus offers top-quality further and higher education, underpinned by Ofsted Grade 1 Outstanding status and commendations from the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).

Cutting edge facilities include a five-bridge full mission ship simulator, an engine room simulator, an environmental survival tank, a firefighting training ground and a hall of residence. The latest addition is a new £1.2m Marine Engineering Centre.

Our strong industry partnerships provide students with excellent employment opportunities; they also allow us to continuously review and update our curriculum – blended learning, for example, was developed to meet a specific industry need.
