Pendennis Shipyard is a world-class superyacht build and refit yard based in Falmouth, Cornwall. Now celebrating its 25th year the company employs over 350 staff, with about a third of the workforce made up of either apprentices currently working through or having previously completed the 4-year course.
Jill Carr manages the Apprenticeship scheme at the shipyard. She joined Pendennis in 1997, after teaching Geography and Careers for a number of years, initially to research and then to initiate this apprenticeship scheme. The first group of apprentices was recruited in 1998 and since then the scheme has secured multiple awards, winning recognition as one of the best of its kind in the UK. This is due to Jill’s passion for training local young people in a skilled trade, and as a result succeeding to continually expand Pendennis’ dynamic workforce.
