The KBSA has revealed that it will be focussing on training and education at KBB Birmingham 2022 on Stand M100. Additionally, education partners The Kitchen Education Trust (TKET) and FIESTA will be supporting the KBSA to promote the range of training and education opportunities currently available.
KBSA chair Richard Hibbert, pictured, said: ”The KBSA is committed to working with our partners to strengthen training and educational policies in our sector. During the past year we have worked with KBSA corporate members to provide bursaries for students on the Foundation Degree, Bucks New University."
“As part of our ongoing strategy we intend to reach out to other organizations worldwide, like the NKBA in the United States and the Furniture Trade College in Cologne, Germany, the only industry school of its kind in Europe.”
The KBSA team will also be on hand to demonstrate the benefits of membership to those wishing to find out more. ”We had an amazing year in 2021 with a record number of new members,” said Hibbert. “Retailers value the business support and added value membership brings. As independent business they want to be part of a networking community that is committed to working on behalf of the independent sector, protecting their interests and helping them make the most of future opportunities.
