The WISTA-UK event will be held at Hugh Baird College in Liverpool, a venue just outside the city centre, but with links to the docks which are both physical and spiritual. The college is looking to become a thought leader on maritime issues, and will hopefully be the provider of a next generation of shipping and port leaders.
Hugh Baird College has a history stretching back to 1891, but it is the future which has everyone talking. The establishment, within the college, of Port Academy Liverpool is hugely significant.
Port Academy Liverpool is a one-stop-shop for courses in port operations and maritime logistics opening in September 2014, and is aimed at school leavers looking to make career choices connected to the maritime industries, or those seeking apprenticeships in logistics. This is the ideal backdrop for our Came by SHIP campaign.
