Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED)


As per BIMCO (2016) and UNCTAD (2016), Philippines is the second largest provider of seafarers worldwide. 215,500 seafarers of the world fleet are from the Philippines, a nation with more than 100 maritime institutes. However, professionals have voiced a growing need for the syllabus employed in these training institutes to be made more current and improved upon. As per many ship owners, this is not an option, but rather a necessity if Filipino seafarers are to continue to hold their good in the world scenario.
In response to this need, GlobalMET has been involved in discussions with the Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) in order to work with them and other stake holders and assist in finding solutions to the current issues that they face. With its knowledge bank and expertise of more than 100 institutional members and more than 1000 maritime lecturers, GlobalMET is committed to providing mutually beneficial solutions to issues facing the maritime training sector.
GlobalMET has already conducted workshops in the Philippines since 2013 for maritime lecturers with active support from the TK foundation and the Nautical Institute, helping maritime educators in the Asia pacific use newer pedagogic methods in imparting learning.

On 26 October 2015, as part of the TKF GlobalMET Continuing Professional Development Programme (CPDP), a joint program consisting of a series of workshops was declared by CHED. This was conducted by GlobalMET with support from the TK foundation under the auspices of CHED in the Philippines. Officials, employees and students from maritime higher education institutes participated in the programs that were conducted and this was received well by the industry.
