BiKBBI joins furniture and interiors training organisation

The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom Installation has joined the Furniture and Interiors Education, Skills and Training Alliance (FIESTA), an organisation founded in 2017 to bring together key trade associations and affiliates from across the furniture and interiors industry to address education and training.

BiKBBI CEO Damian Walters will sit on the FIESTA executive with other industry representatives and contribute to FIESTA’s aims of encouraging and inspiring new talent to join the industry.

“Education is extremely important to the work that we do as an institute, whether that is training the current or future generation of kbb installers,” Walters commented.

“The aims of FIESTA align perfectly with our own goals and ambitions of ensuring the right training and apprenticeship schemes are in place and that we have people with the specialist skills to ensure our industry flourishes.”

Chairman of FIESTA Gary Baker (pictured) said: “The BiKBBI has done some fantastic work addressing the training and education needs within the installation sector and we’re delighted to have someone with Damian’s passion and enthusiasm on the FIESTA executive to work alongside us in identifying and creating solutions that support the needs of the entire furniture and interiors industry.”
