What skills are vital to the role of marine engineer? Marine engineer Spencer Johns takes us on a tour of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s headquarters in Poole. As a part of a team of engineers he is responsible for keeping the RNLI’s fleet of boats up and running.

This is the first of a pair of programmes following people employed in the engineering industry throughout their working day to reveal the Level 2 literacy, numeracy and ICT skills they need to use.

Together with the accompanying web site,, which features a range of linked interactive tasks, the \”FE Skills: for Life in Context\” series is designed to help 14-19 year old students on vocational courses with their literacy, numeracy and ICT skills.
