The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation – BiKBBI – has named Michael Burke as its new apprenticeship ambassador.

Burke was previously divisional installations manager and contracts manager at Home Retail Group, the former owner of Homebase.

In his new role, he will be responsible for the development and national roll-out of the BiKBBI’s apprenticeship scheme.

“I’ve been in admiration of what BiKBBI is achieving in the field of education and I am delighted to now have the opportunity to be part of this incredibly important initiative as well as working with one or two familiar faces myself.”

BiKBBI education officer Stephanie Gray added: “We have been incredibly pleased with the progress of our year one apprenticeship programme and we are now ready to formulate a national roll-out strategy.

“We see Michael, together with his vast experience within this industry, as being an important ingredient to this initiative. Michael brings a plethora of experience and importantly key contacts and as such we are looking forward to working with him on this incredibly important programme.”
