Stirling and Son offer a number of two year internships each year in both shipwrighting and yacht finishing.
Stirling and Son Apprentice:
‘I applied for the apprenticeship with Stirling and Son as it offered me the opportunity to learn a traditional craft in a very traditional environment, specifically the restoration of wooden vessels on an historical slipway. I am surrounded by shipwrights who have a wealth of knowledge and experience that I am eager to draw on and that will hopefully one day turn me into someone just as competent. Already I have been involved with a variety of projects from a clinker dinghy to a Brixham trawler. The most exciting thing is that every day is different which means constantly learning and facing new challenges. I think this is the perfect springboard for an adventurous career and I am very grateful to have such a unique opportunity.’
