Why us?

As a BP Shipping Cadet you’ll have a career like no other. Working on one of the world’s most sophisticated fleets, you’ll spend long periods of time transporting valuable commodities all over the world. This work is highly specialised, which is why training is so important. We’ll ensure that whilst you’re spending periods of time at sea, your time is also split between leisure and study for your internationally-recognised Seafarer’s License.
You’ll be required to have discipline, professionalism, and the determination to learn; but we will set you up with a long-lasting career and friends from all over the world. By the end of the three-year programme, you’ll be a trained officer with a globally-recognised qualification and an exciting career to look forward to.

The programme

Our Cadet programme offers three different routes, each made up of five core phases, three of which are spent studying on land at a Maritime College, with the other two spent gaining practical experience at sea.

If you join us as a Deck Cadet, you’ll be a key part of the crew. In this role you will learn everything from navigational and bridge watching duties to handling the ships cargo. You’ll also gain the Deck Watchkeeping Officer ‘certificate of competency’ from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).

At the heart of the ship, Engineering Cadets learn about the main engines and maintain propulsion equipment as well as looking after all the mechanical equipment on board including auxiliary machinery – all whilst gaining the Engineer Watchkeeping Officer ‘certificate of competency’ from the Maritime andCoastguard Agency (MCA).

Electro Technical Cadets should have an uncompromising commitment to safety. On this route you will achieve a UK Marine Electro-Technical Officer (METO) ‘certificate of competency’ (STCW A-III/6 OOW) from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), whilst learning how to fix and maintain all electronic systems, from bridge navigation to radio communications.
