Ironart on BBC Radio Bristol

Alice was interviewed on the BBC Radio Bristol drivetime show yesterday, hosted by Geoff Twentyman. The interview was about the problems that small to medium sized businesses face when they consider recruiting an apprentice. Here at Ironart we had to do a lot of research into each of the local colleges, what course they offer, what apprenticeship packages they offered, and what their expectations were from us as a business before we could even start to think about who we would take on.

Radstock College have joined forces with Bath college to try and make the process simpler, thereby encouraging more businesses and opening up more opportunities for apprentices in BANES. It’s a great initiative and we’re right behind them.
