KBB NTG Lead the charge to support the petition to keep creative subjects in school including design and technology.

KBB NTG CEO Renée comments “The NTG is a member of the Proskills (Sector Skills Body) Furniture Board and are working together to support the petition to keep creative subjects in school including design and technology. These subjects are vital to the industry and the schools programmes and with the current skills shortage in the KBB industry, it is important we do all we can to secure a career pathway for new entrants.”

The English Baccalaureate, or Ebacc, is a standard which maintains that English, maths, science, a language and a humanity define a good education. The exclusion of art, music, drama and other expressive subjects is limiting, short sighted and cruel. Creativity must be at the heart of our schools.
