29.11.10. Education sectors unite to unveil the UK’s first National School of Furniture

Launch of The National School of Furniture, a unique partnership which sees the higher and further education sectors unite with businesses and associations to create a holistic educational experience, offering huge benefits to learners and the entire furniture industry. The partnership is between Bucks New University in High Wycombe, and Oxford and Cherwell Valley College, working together to provide education across all levels; from Level 1 (Certificate) through to Level 8 (PhD), creating an educational ‘journey’ with flexible entry and exit points. Through the School, students can choose to study from a diverse range of courses, including short skills-based training, bespoke industry courses, apprenticeships, leisure courses and diplomas, as well as more traditional undergraduate, foundation and master’s degree courses. The National School of Furniture will create a skills base for furniture-making, design, manufacture, conservation and furniture retail, and an integrated offer for furniture programmes in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.
