Oxford and Cherwell Valley College has launched the National School of Furniture for the UK, aiming to offer training in furniture-making from level one to PhDs by working with Bucks New University. The national school's courses will include short skills training, bespoke industry courses, apprenticeships and leisure courses, as well as degrees. Chris Hyde, head of the school, said: "This is a key time for the furniture industry, and it is vital that the education sector and employers invest in skills for growth. The school will be creating the next generation of highly skilled talent, helping to ensure economic growth for the furniture industry and the nation as a whole."
