Sponsored Officer Trainees

The MEF works in partnership with contracted training providers to train 40 officers a year. This page will provide more details if you are: –
  • interested in becoming an officer trainee
  • or a training provider interested in working with the MEF

Each Year the MEF aims to sponsor 40 officer trainees. These trainees will be recruited and managed by our chosen contracted training providers, with their training directed by the MEF Officer Training Good Practice Guidelines.

A range of development activities are being added to the MEF officer training programmes, aimed at producing ‘gold standard’ officers. In partnership with the Outward Bound Trust the MEF is developing leadership and management courses to enhance different stages of the trainees’ programme, from induction and pre-sea to junior officer character development post certification.

Training providers who are interested in working in partnership with the MEF please contact Kate Gillespie.
