  • Withdrawal of sponsorship - a tough decision!

    Good afternoon all,

    Well as the title denotes, I have made the decision to withdraw my sponsorship agreement with Clyde Marine Training.

    I cannot emphasize enough how good Clyde Marine Training are and have been and I praise them for their kindness into sponsoring me in Sep 2011.

    It was a really tough decision, but a correct one.

    I wish the very best of luck to all who start in September 2011 and those who apply in the near future.

    I would like to think that I will have the opportunity to re-apply in the future.

    Thanks all,

    Why did you decide to withdraw your sponsorship mate? If its not too much of a personal question to ask

      What happened mate? Hope everything's alright

      I would like to think that I will have the opportunity to re-apply in the future.
      I don't know if that's possible. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought because of the SMarT funding, you only got one crack at it? Also, if a company finds out that you've already packed it in once, i don't think you'll be likely to get back in. I think that's usually the case anyway

        I'm sure some smart guy will come along with the answer soon, but I think.. since WILSON hadn't started the course yet, he's still never received SMarT funding, and also you could say he's not really done as much as quit the course. So I guess it might be fine, unless he said the wrong things when re-applying.

        I'm curious as to what the story is. There must be a story behind this, but all we get so far is a teaser.

          you could guess that sometihng has come up that prevents him starting the course, or maybe even cold feet, if either are the case then a chat with the sponsor would generally let them know and rather than having them thinking ' oh hes chucked it we wont give him a place again ' quite often in these things its how you go about saying goodbye depends on what chances the future might hold
          you can take it with a pinch of salt, but i prefer it with a nip of whisky

            Thank you all for your replies.

            To clarify - I'm not having cold feet & thankfully not ill.
            The truth is that I have been offered a full time position with a good prospect of a job for the near future.

            Don't get me wrong the Merchant Navy would the career of a life time with sights not many people can claim to have seen.

            Obviously it was a tough decision to make, but would a life @ sea be for me, I may love the training but hate the sea?

            I had to weigh up both sides and the full time position won.

            I have informed CMT and awaiting a response. I thought it was the best option to be honest and let them know immediately.
