The Bowmans Shipping Podcast #4: Transforming maritime education with Brian Ingpen

August 21 | Shipping, Aviation and Logistics

In this episode, partner and host, Jeremy Prain, is joined Brian Ingpen – a man who considers himself lucky to have lived a life combining his hobby, his passion and his profession into one: teaching children about ships. Brian has spent most his adult life at the forefront of maritime education in South Africa, half of which was as the head of Lawhill Maritime Centre; a boarding house affiliated with Simon’s Town School which teaches Maritime Economics and Nautical Science to students aged approximately 15 to 17 and provides them with specialised knowledge and practical skills. Jeremy and Brian reflects on his childhood amongst the Cape Town docks; his life at Lawhill; and his new book.
