South Shields Marine School is always adapting. We now offer an extensive programme of nautical science courses through remote training. You can gain internationally-recognised skills and qualifications from wherever in the world suits you.

Part remote learning, part face-to-face, all flexibility. Our adaptive teaching techniques help you get the best from our commercial marine courses, without always being on site.

Flexible to suit you

Start learning remotely

If you’re learning remotely, you might need some extra support. Here are some useful links and contact information to help you find what you need.


Whilst you are studying from home, we will deliver remote lessons via Microsoft Teams and this is where you will gain access to subject specific course materials. This can be accessed via PC, Laptop, Tablet or Smartphone. 


When you’ve enrolled with us, you will receive dedicated joining instructions which will give you access to all our remote provisions.
