Sažetak
It is essential for the maritime industry that a common working language, namely Maritime English, is competently used to safeguard the ship, its crew, the environment in which it sails (i.e. navigational, technical and legal) and to realize an efficient sea transport procedure. This presupposes that the graduates of maritime academies are well prepared and that their mentors are qualified to perform the task required by the international regulations as they are one of the target groups the regulations aim at. Among these mentors Maritime English lecturers play an important part since communication deficiencies continue to create a serious risk to crews, ships and environment. This paper recalls and reconsiders the research done by Cole, Pritchard & Trenkner (2007) concerning the profiling of Maritime English instructors, which categorized and described the various types of Maritime English instructors employed at higher Maritime Education and Training (MET) institutions worldwide, and defines the requirements regarding their professional qualifications in the areas of applied linguistics, methodology and the minimum maritime background knowledge as seen by the authors and demanded by the relevant international legislation, especially by STCW 1978, as amended, and SOLAS 1974, as amended. Building on the typology of the professional qualifications of the modern Maritime English teacher the paper also deals with the requirements on the ME teacher's competence in applying modern methods of assessing students' linguistic and communicative competence in the light of the IMO STCW and current ESP standards. Thus the paper aims to provide a guideline for management and prospective instructors enabling them to meet IMO’s slogan:”Safe, secure and efficient shipping on clean oceans.”
