In cautarea de locuri pentru cadeti am gasit si un site cu vanzari de nave care avea si o sectiune in care navigatorii depuneau un fel de scrisoare (mai mult mesaj) de intentie. Marea majoritate a aplicantilor sunt de nationalitate indiana, filipineza, rusa si araba. Citind printre zecile de oferte cateva mi-au atras atentia prin continutul lor aparte unii mentionand, dupa cum reiese si din ele mai jos, ca situatia lor financiara este critica sau ca desi au o pregatire “temeinica” nu isi gasesc locuri la bordul navelor datorita nationalitatii sau coruptiei din agentiile de crewing din tara lor. Desi posturile sunt mai vechi si marea criza inca nu lovise economia mondiala , situatia acestor cadeti straini nu era stralucita si nu cred ca s-a schimbat in vreun fel. Daca faci o mica paralela se pare ca si pentru noi a devenit o problema faptul ca multe companii nu au programe de cadeti sau au renuntat la romani din diferite motive, iar in ceea ce priveste agentiile de crewing dupa cum stim cu totii si la noi se practica spaga pentru a obtine un loc la bordul vreunei nave (la unele agentii !). Citind aceste posturi incep sa cred ca situatia cadetilor va ramane in continuare incerta. Sper ca pe viitor va creste cererea de cadeti (mai ales la punte) si nu voi ajunge sa trimit astfel de scrisori de intentie pe cont propriu la armatori.

I am a Nigerian Student at Blackpool and the Fylde College (Fleetwood Nautical Campus) studying a 3 year Bsc (Hons) Nautical Science course in conjunction with Liverpool John Moores University.
I was informed about your prestigious Company’s tremendous offer to provide Cadets with the necessary seatime, by the Head of Maritime Operations ( Mr. Tony Dumbell ) and I will like to know if it is possible for your Company to sponsor me? This is simply because, I was on private sponsorship by my elder Brother who struggled to pay my Tuition/Accommodation fees, but now he doesn’t have any means of continuing the sponsorship for my 2nd and 3rd years at Liverpool. Though I still have every intention to complete my studies.
I have written to more than a dozen Companies in the UK but they all turned me down on the basis of my Nationality.I also wrote to a Company in my Country which reputedly sponsors Students but was told that recruitment has closed until further notice.Which means that I won’t be able to obtain the required seatime for the Officer of the Watch (OOW) Certificate and the NVQs 2 and 3 at the end of my first year here.
Already, I have completed the STCW ‘ 95 Four mandatory short courses and I have a valid Seafarer’s Medical Certificate.
Please, I will really appreciate it if my humble request is favourably considered.
Looking forward to your soonest reply.
