Cosentino UK continues its support for The Kitchen Education Trust
Cosentino UK tells us it is delighted to be continuing its support of The Kitchen Education Trust through the awarding of a 50% scholarship for the award-winning foundation degree course in Kitchen Design at Buckinghamshire New University, to Dan Hughes (pictured), a designer at Cosentino Elite Studio, Classic & Modern Kitchens.
Dan has worked for the company, based in Caerphilly, Wales, since 2012 and is delighted to have been selected for the course.
A three-year distance learning course, it focuses on a wide range of topics including design, sales and marketing, business, materials, manufacturing and project management, with students taught at the highest level by industry experts.
"I have worked in the kitchen industry for 14 years, but this is a great opportunity for me to expand my horizons and learn from industry professionals at the top of their game," says Dane. "I am hugely appreciative to Cosentino for its support, and I am looking forward to getting to grips with the various aspects of the course, which I will be able to apply to my work at Classic & Modern Kitchens."
Paul Gidley, area director for Cosentino UK says: "We are committed to supporting our industry and nurturing upcoming talent. We are delighted to be supporting The Kitchen Education Trust through the offer of a 50% scholarship on such a prestigious course, and we look forward to seeing more from Dan as he progresses through his studies."
