    I had the same thing it was a bit odd. It wasn't entirely clear it was an interview more like an induction. Basically go to northern Marines offices in clyde bank. Watch a presentation from Calmac and Northern Marine. Have some sensible questions prepared ( don't ask about money or holidays etc). Dress smart shirt and tie and you'll be fine.

      They are great to do cadetship with for a number of reasons:
      They actually come to college every couple of months to find out how your doing
      You get a good mix of ships RoRo Pax with calmac and tankers with NMM
      Should get 1 or 2 dangerous cargo endorsements by end of your cadetship
      On ferry all officers and crew are British know what your going through training-wise and are very keen to help
      Calmac ships mostly don't sail at night so plenty of time ashore in some remote and interesting parts of Scotland
      Food on ferry is ace although far to much (4 course lunches)
