Liskeard School and Community College has been thrilled to welcome Jim Underwood, Director of Restormel CNC Engineering, to visit their Engineering Department.  The school, a specialist engineering college, is excited to be working with Restormel CNC.  Rob Meier, Head of Engineering, said: “It’s really exciting to be linking with a cutting edge company who are making specialist machined components here in south-east Cornwall.  Our students will gain access to industry standard equipment and the opportunity to link their learning to the real world of the manufacturing industry through this partnership.”

Jim presented the school with a £500 donation towards their entry into the prestigious Greenpower eco go-kart engineering challenge and said:

“It’s great to visit a school who are clearly so passionate about engineering and who are streets ahead of most schools in terms of their equipment and approach.”

The school is now planning to continue the partnership with students travelling to Restormel CNC’s workshop to be trained and use industry specification machinery for their GCSE and A Level projects.  The possibility of further collaboration and profitable apprenticeship routes for the brightest, budding engineers beckon.
