Kitchen Design Degree Sponsorship opportunity by Deco Glaze

As part of our commitment to education and skills improvement within the industry.
Deco Glaze are offering one of our clients the opportunity to win a 50% donation for one of their team towards the value of a foundation Degree course in kitchens design at Buckinghamshire University.
The course starts in September 2017 and is a three year Foundation Degree Programme designed in conjunction with key members of the kitchen industry and is in response to national training needs.
This course enhances the skills and career prospects of those already engaged in the industry in a range of positions. It is delivered as a distance learning, work-related foundation degree. Three intensive residential skills workshops are included each year at Missenden Abbey Conference Centre in the heart of the Chiltern Hills.
Here is what Sophie from Cadbury Kitchens (last year’s winner) has to say about the course:
“I’ve recently completed the first year of the Kitchen Design Course.
The course not only encompasses kitchen design generally but also looks further afield to ergonomics, psychology, and history; skills gained in these areas are helping me to understand the industry.
It’s encouraging me to think differently about design as kitchens are no longer simply kitchens – they’re living spaces with a kitchen in. A multi-purpose space to socialise, cooks, eat and relax in. So we’re learning to create spaces for a variety of tasks and for a variety of people.
I’ve really enjoyed designing kitchens for projects on the course which are so different to what I design at work. The course enables me to play with materials and ideas; to think outside the box.
Joining the course is a brilliant opportunity to gain more knowledge, learn about the industry as a whole and to improve design skills – I’m already looking forward to next year.”
This is a very exciting opportunity for both clients and ourselves to help create a more knowledgeable and creative industry and we look forward to a close relationship with whoever we sponsor, we are looking to put a candidate forward for the course by the end of August 2017.
In you are interested in applying please contact us as soon as possible.
