BLANCO, in partnership with Kitchen Education Trust, is looking to sponsor a new student for popular kitchen design course

John Robinson. BLANCO's Marketing Manager

As part of BLANCO's commitment to innovation, the premium kitchen sink and tap brand are helping to develop new and inspirational kitchen designers. The company is looking to sponsor an FDA Kitchen Design student on the three-year course at Bucks New University in partnership with TKET (The Kitchen Education Trust). Since the inception of the kitchen design course in 2016, BLANCO has sponsored two students and has gone on to support the first graduate in her continued development beyond the course.

The scholarship, which starts in September 2019, is designed to encourage those interested in kitchen design to gain the relevant skills and qualifications to be successful. The course is delivered as a distance learning, work-related foundation degree. Three intensive residential skills workshops are included each year.  BLANCO is offering the selected student £2000 each year, contributing to the fees for the three-year course.

BLANCO would like to put the new student forward for the course as soon as possible and asks anyone who would like to be considered to contact them directly 16thAugust. All that has to be done right now is to let them know the prospective student's name, place of work and why you feel they (or you) deserve sponsorship support from BLANCO.

John Robinson, BLANCO UK's Marketing Manager, comments "It made sense to us, from the very first year, to invest in the advancement of talent and design in the kitchen industry. We are a brand at the forefront of innovation; and this course is a great and welcome innovation which complements BLANCO's message and ethos. This is also why we get involved with awards and sponsorship generally. We want to make sure we are involved in the kitchen industry in all sorts of ways - including nurturing and supporting the future stars. We want people to aspire to work in this exciting industry and strive when they get here. It can only be beneficial to all of us. BLANCO supports this exciting vocational qualification as we want to contribute as much as we can, promoting the design of kitchens and the fantastic products in it."
