The South Devon College Marine Academy, based at Noss Marina on the River Dart, is a centre of excellence for water-based outdoor education and training.
The Marine Academy offers a range of full-time and part-time courses, recognised nationally by the outdoor and water sports industry. This includes the Foundation Degree in Yacht Operations, unique in this country.
South Devon College is an approved training centre for The Royal Yachting Association (RYA), British Canoe Union (BCU) and The UK Coaching Certificate (UKCC) courses, and is also one of only eight RS Academies in the country (RS are a sailing boat manufacturer).
There is an extensive enrichment programme which will enable learners to undertake residentials, trips and visits, work-placements and further essential vocational qualifications to maximise employability. Other marine-based courses, including Marine Engineering, are also available at the college’s Noss Marina site.
