ACADEMY LAUNCH TO SUPPORT YOUTH INTO MANUFACTURING AND ENGINEERING

Manufacturing and engineering skills in Cornwall are getting a boost with the formation of a pre-16 manufacturing academy.
The Cornwall Manufacturers Group and the Cornwall College Group partnered to address the skills gap in the sector, resulting in The CMG Academy.
A launch event was held at the Cornwall College Camborne campus with key guests from the manufacturing industry gathering to celebrate this new development. The CMG Academy will help pupils from local schools to develop their skills in manufacturing and engineering, resulting in them gaining a Level 2 Diploma in Manufacturing & Engineering.
To be enrolled in the academy, all the interested pupils will go through an interview process. The curriculum developed for this course has come as the result of a close collaboration between Cornwall Manufacturers Group and The Cornwall College Group.
