IBTC Portsmouth and it’s satellite shipwright school at Buckler’s Hard have now opened their doors to the first cohort of boatbuilding students.
The group at Portsmouth are said to be the first boatbuilding students at the site since the 1960s – the photo shows the nine Portsmouth students enjoying a break in the sun last week.
The IBTC folks report that local reaction to the opening has been very positive.
The college now recruiting for July 2015 for the college’s 47-week City & Guilds wooden boatbuilding diploma at both Portsmouth and Lowestoft. April is the first course, with intakes in July, Sept and December 2015. Enrolling now.
