The Kbsa in conjunction with global brand Fisher & Paykel have provided funding to support more students undertaking the Foundation Degree “Kitchen Design” at Buckinghamshire New University (BNU), this September.
The support from Fisher & Paykel will cover two students already signed up via a Kbsa bursary, allowing the Kbsa to offer support to others that wish to study at BNU.
A third student Ella Kirsopp from Ream Interiors will be joining the foundation degree this year, with financial support from CITB and the Kbsa.
Mark Young Retail Sales Director at Fisher & Paykel said, “We are delighted to be supporting students on this very worthwhile kitchen design course. It is a technically focused and knowledge based programme that provides students with essential skills to build a career as a designer.
“We hope to continue working with the Kbsa and BNU to support more students in the future.”
Peter Cross MD at Ream added, “The Foundation Degree will provide Ella with a fantastic opportunity to develop her skills and knowledge. As a blended course she will continue to work with us alongside her studies, having the opportunity to apply the tools and techniques she is learning in the showroom.”
Students interested in a bursary for the BNU Foundation Degree or the BA (Hons) top up course, which starts next year can contact the Kbsa for further information.
