We believe all cadets should have the money they need to complete their studies without enduring financial hardships. That's why we're campaigning for cadet courses to be fully funded, and pushing for companies to increase cadet pay.
Nautilus surveys have revealed that cadets are hit especially hard by the rising cost of living.
Many members have told us about cutting back on heating and other essentials and visiting family less often.
This situation cannot go on. Some cadets have even dropped out of their studies for financial reasons – a disaster for them personally, and for the UK government which claims that it wants to build a strong maritime industry.
Nautilus International wants to change all of this for the better.
Nautilus International is currently working on new ways to financially support cadets, in light of the current situation.
Nautilus members are already entitled to money off services such as tax advice, insurance discounts and advice on pension matters.
There are also discounts that can help to see you through your cadetship, including money off your supermarket shopping and other purchases. This is arranged through the Nautilus Plus scheme.
