Today, Trinity House is the General Lighthouse Authority for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar. It is also the largest endowed maritime charity in the United Kingdom, which provides major grants to maritime organizations engaged in welfare provision, education and training and the promotion of safety at sea.
It is through this charity that the Trinity House Merchant Navy Scholarship Scheme is funded.
A career at sea in the Merchant Navy is one of the most satisfying and worthwhile occupations it is possible to have. From the start, you will learn to stand on your own two feet, experience early responsibility, work with the latest technology, meet like minded people from different nationalities, see the world and be well paid for doing so.
There are excellent career opportunities for young people of the right type who can meet the minimum academic requirements and have a practical and enthusiastic approach to life.
