Abstract
    The Antwerp Maritime Academy (AMA) offers nowadays 2 Nautical Education programs namely in Nautical Sciences and Maritime Engineering. At AMA [1] an entirety of clearly structured bachelor and master programmes is offered to students from all positions in society and from all generations. Whereas other HEI's are only bound by legal stipulations on a regional level, programmes at AMA moreover need to meet international rules and quality standards of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). AMA issues certificates that are in accordance with the IMO STCW 95-norm (Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers). The Manila 2010 amendments [2] to the STCW Convention and Code were adopted on 25 June 2010 marking a major revision of the STCW Convention and Code. The 2010 amendments are set to enter info force on 1 January 2012 are aimed at bringing the Convention and Code up to date and to enable them to address issues that are anticipated to emerge in the foreseeable future. Amongst the amendments adopted, there are a number of important changes to each chapter of the Convention and Code, including new requirements for marine environment awareness training and training in leadership and teamwork. The 2010 amendments are now implemented into the educational programs of the AMA. During their study the students deal with different teamwork-related issues as, leadership, team capabilities, common purpose, team norms, communication, conflicts, team operating procedures, member integration. These activities are distributed across the curricula [3], considering a long-term deployment.
