Shipping News Feature UK – A brand new school designed to provide world-class education and training in the global shipping industry has been launched in London. Run by the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS), the London School of Shipping will provide education and training to professionals primarily working in the shipping industry in the country's capital and offers convenient and affordable evening classes in numerous subjects, leading to recognised professional qualifications, held in modern facilities close to London Bridge.

London’s shipping community and leading broking houses have been involved in the design of the School, having long-called for an officially-supported teaching centre in the city. Students should benefit from face-to-face teaching in small groups and an impressive programme of guest lectures from industry leaders. Julie Lithgow, Director of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, said:

“We are delighted to bring this long-held ambition to fruition and enhance the support available to companies operating in London and individuals looking to expand their knowledge, gain recognised qualifications and advance their careers.”

Classes, which will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, begin at the end of September / early October and take place every fortnight per subject over two semesters leading up to exams in May 2019. David Dingle CBE, Chairman of Maritime UK, said:

“London’s leading position in maritime services relies on its ability to attract, train and retain the right pool of talent and professional qualifications have a big role to play, not only in ensuring that people have the knowledge to do their jobs, but also by supporting professionalism in our sector so that our institutions and companies continue to be among the most trusted worldwide – a valuable commodity in shipping circles.”

The School will initially teach the following subjects:

  • Introduction to Shipping
  • Legal Principles in Shipping Business
  • Economics of Sea Transport & International Trade
  • Shipping Business
  • Dry Cargo Chartering
  • Ship Operations & Management
  • Ship Sale & Purchase 2017/18
  • Tanker Chartering
  • Logistics & Multi-modal Transport
  • Shipping Law
  • Marine Insurance
