Bradfords backs training programme

Published:  14 October, 2011

NORTH SOMERSET: Weston College's construction and engineering centre has collaborated with Bradford Building Supplies to give the college competitive rates for building materials and equipment as well as advice, support and training days.

Construction lecturer, Shaun Canniford, said: "We have been given around £2000 worth of materials so far and we are set to save around 30% on usual costs".

Ed Finch, Bradfords Weston-based commercial manager, said: "Working closely with the college will allow Bradfords to build relationships with the next generation of trades-people and help them make the transition when they leave education."
