Stan Shaw of Kitchenology is all set to be a Kitchen Designer of the Future having landed this year's Egger UK bursary and a place on an award-winning university degree course.
Stan is our installations and accounts manager and for the next three years, he will study for the part-time Foundation Degree in Kitchen Design at Buckinghamshire New University – now in its fourth year. As well as attending residential sessions three times a year, students participate via online learning in regular tutorials and lecture presentations.
In conjunction with TKET – The Kitchen Education Trust – the course aims to produce informed and creative designers with better design skills, product knowledge and understanding of the industry.
It covers materials, technology, business, sales & marketing, history, psychology, manufacturing and project management as well as design – with TKET members across the KBB sector involved as visiting lecturers and mentors.
Kitchenology is delighted that Stan has been offered this well deserved opportunity of a lifetime and are looking forward to being part of the process in the continuing development of his skills.
