Furniture components show Elements – taking place at the NEC Birmingham from the 30th September to the 3rd October – has partnered with The Kitchen Education Trust – TKET – and Buckinghamshire New University for its Education Zone.

The new zone – which Elements announced earlier this year – is designed to “champion young talent and careers in the furniture design and manufacturing industry”.

Buckinghamshire New University – which offers the UK’s first foundation degree in kitchen design – will be offering visitors a virtual reality tour “as a way of representing the many roles available to people in the industry”.

“We want to get people interested in the industry and what it has to offer,” said Buckinghamshire New University kitchen design course leader Paul Lighterness. “To do this, we’ve teamed up with our software partner, ArtiCAD, to create a virtual reality zone that is open to everyone at the show.

“The Elements exhibition gives us and TKET an opportunity to be part of the industry. The new Education Zone is the ideal setting for us to promote education and careers in the sector, whilst also offering advice on scholarships and funding.”
