New course offers hope for fishing industry
A new maritime training course is being created to increase the rates of young pepole entering into the fishing industry on St Helena.

Business teacher Fraser Stone told the committee was was planning to introduce a new enterprise and marketing course through the college “in the coming weeks”.
