Acres consultancy sponsors kitchen design degree student
Acres Consultancy has sponsored Andrea Williams, a student studying for the Foundation Degree in Kitchen Design at Buckinghamshire New University. Andrea funded herself through the first year of the course and is delighted to have received a financial contribution towards the second year of her course from Acres Consultancy.
"I am grateful to Acres Consultancy for its contribution," says Andrea. "Having completed the first year of the course, I am determined to complete it and fulfil my dream of becoming a kitchen designer. This financial contribution is a great help."
Principle director Simon Acres (pictured here with Andrea) says: "We are delighted to support Andrea with her degree. As a new business dedicated to training and education in the industry, we wanted to show our commitment to working with others that promote qualifications and training for our industry, as TKET do with Bucks University."
Andrea works at Design a Space, a retail business which has two kitchen and interior showrooms in Bucks, and in addition to distance learning, takes time out to attend three long weekend residential sessions each academic year at the university.
Andrea says: "It is a great way to learn, I benefit from learning with industry experts that share how they approach projects and develop imaginative designs. I feel the course is giving me a comprehensive understanding of the industry, is broadening my product knowledge and is inspiring me to become a highly skilled designer."
