South Shields Marine School provides a wide range of Maritime training for seafarers. From VTS courses, Engineering courses, certificates of competency, professional development courses and maritime safety courses to comply with government Maritime legislation.
Rather than staying in the Halls of Residence at the Marine School, many people choose to stay in alternative accommodation. The Clifton in South Shields has been providing comfortable, quality accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis for Seafarers for many years. Just a few minutes away by car the Clifton is ideally located in the heart of South Shields.
We have quiet rooms with desks, ideal for studying. There is Free high speed WiFi and a printing service should you need it. There is also a quiet area: The Library Room; which is available for residents to relax in on an evening.
We also have a great Coffee shop which serves food all day. So if you need a packed lunch to take with you or just want a break from your studies, you can relax in an ambient environment and choose from a great range of food from our menu.
If you are staying for an extended period of time we can offer you discounted rates on accommodation. Phone us when you have booked on your course to discuss your accommodation requirements.
