Have your say on TKET’s new apprenticeship

TKET has been given the green light to develop a new Living and Commercial Spaces Designer Apprenticeship – and it is asking for your views.

Having gained approval from the Institute for Apprenticeship and Technical Education, The Kitchen Education Trust’s new degree apprenticeship, once complete, will be supported by the Government’s apprenticeship scheme for universities to roll out across England.

Employers in the industry, with the support of TKET, the Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Specialists Association (KBSA) and training professionals have been working hard on the content and scope of this new apprenticeship, but they are asking the industry for its help to make sure that it meets the needs of the widest cross-section of organisations.

If you are an employer, training provider, assessment organisation or potential apprentice, TKET is encouraging you to fill its survey form before October 31, 2022.

The apprenticeship is intended for designers working, from retail showrooms that offer bespoke design. It will cover areas such as bespoke design, creative skills and related services for kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, dining rooms, home office, boats and connected living spaces, including multigenerational and accessible applications, as well as one-off commercial developments.

A copy of the proposed standard can be downloaded here.
