Marine People Partnership (MPP)

The Marine People Partnership (MPP) was established to explore workforce development issues and advise on a national human resource development strategy.  Conceived from Irving Shipbuilding’s Value Proposition commitment under NSPS, the objective of the MPP is to propose objective and relevant recommendations aimed at overcoming challenges to developing a highly trained, skilled, and available workforce.  The workforce in question spans the continuum from skilled trades and technology workers to professionals or knowledge workers (i.e. engineers, marine architects), entrepreneurs, and leadership roles.  The overarching objective of this initiative is to provide the necessary workforce to establish an innovative, sustainable, and globally competitive marine industry
