Cadet Mentoring

With regards to being prepared for a level III SAMSA assessment, it has long been identified that the biggest challenge facing Marine Engineering cadets is the lack of training received onboard. The long-term mentoring program has been developed to provide Engineering Cadets with the following support:

New Program 2

(i)     3rd party monitoring of onboard training book progress, and task relevance to level III assessment criteria.

(ii)    Assignment provision and assessment of topics - in line with level III assessment priorities.

(iii)   3 Monthly meetings with cadets to ascertain their progress made, and to provide guidance as required.

(iv)   Report generation to employers/sponsors as to the progress made and readiness of the students.

This free pilot program has been started for students of the 2018 academic intake (who have secured a seagoing berth) as part of an academic data research collection process involving CPUT students. The aim of this pilot program is to ascertain how external assistance provided to students (throughout their cadetship), can aid their development and readiness of the level III assessment.
