John Ruddleston

Name:  John Ruddleston


I moved to Cornwall with my wife in 2010 and was also based down here in the 1970s while serving in the Royal Navy.  I own an International Management Consultancy based in Camelford which has a client base around the world.  I am a keen surfer and climber.

Work Experience/Professional Qualifications: 

I have a Fellowship from Cranfield University and I am a member of the Nuclear Institute, Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Royal Aeronautical Society.  I started my career as a Marine Engineer then spent 26 years working in the Aerospace and Space sector mainly in Research and Development (R&D) then transferred into the Nuclear Industry where I went on to support numerous Government departments in London.

Why a Trustee: 

Earlier in my career I had the responsibility for training and mentoring Craft, Technical and Graduate apprentices and found this very rewarding.  Having a passion for lifelong learning, when the opportunity came up to be a Trustee of the North Cornwall Learning Trust, I didn't hesitate, I am a great believer in education and understand the impact and importance it has on children's dreams and ambitions.
