Further collaboration and support to enhance Russian cadets’ English communication skills on-board.


Ex-Marlow Navigation training instructor, Captain Shchadin and General Director of Marlow Navigation Vladivostok, Dmitry Shchadin have recently been incorporated into the team for examining cadets at G.I. Nevelskoi Maritime State University (MSU), in Vladivostok, Russia.

This extends the long term cooperation between Marlow and MSU, and will provide the opportunity for the company to better contribute its experience and know-how to maritime education, providing a more commercially-orientated and employer perspective.

As a member of the International Maritime Employers’ Council (IMEC), Marlow Navigation initiated the IMEC Maritime English Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) project for MSU cadets back in 2010. The goal was to improve English teaching methods at the university in order to enhance Russian cadets’ English communication skills on-board.

The project was funded by IMEC and facilitated by Marlow Navigation, and initially ran over one academic year for a pilot group of 60 students, with a long-term plan to assist MSU in gradually applying the approach for all cadets thereafter. In turn, the CLT project was implemented into the standard academic curricula.

The inclusion of international maritime industry representatives as examiners for the state English exams at MSU is another good indication of the positive results and continued progress of this project.

MSU is a leading Maritime University in Russia and the Asian-Pacific region, preparing specialists necessary for the industry, such as in the spheres of natural science, humanities, technical and marine conventional trends. MSU boasts 11 Institutes, 16 Faculties, a Maritime College, Human-Technical Lyceum, lyceum classes, the School of Young Sailors and a Kids’ Studio.
