STUDENTS from Communication Specialist College Doncaster have been learning about the latest innovation and technology from diamond tool makers Marcrist International.


The company, a leader in the cutting, grinding and drilling tool industry, showed four students the different products they make and gave them a tour of the warehouse and workshop.


Suzie Beaumont from Communication Specialist College Doncaster said: “We are extremely grateful to Marcrist for taking the time out to meet our students and show us the fantastic work that they do.


“It is important for us to be able to show our deaf students different working environments as we prepare them through their college learning for the world of work. The students really enjoyed the visit and learned lots of new information.”


Warehouse Manager, Andy Linley showed the group around and explained different processes, he also allowed the students to get hands on and involved.


Natalia, one of the students said: “We all got to experience the machinery used in the manufacturing process and had a live demonstration on how barrel drills are prepared and spray painted. It was great.”


Karl Lycett, Product Manager of Marcrist International, said: “It was great to be able to welcome the staff and students from Communication Specialist College Doncaster to Marcrist.


“The group were really interested in finding out more about the work that we do and hopefully this is the beginning of a long relationship with the college and with Doncaster Deaf Trust.


“We know how important industry visits and work experience placements are for specialist colleges and we are pleased that it was so well received.”
