High street department store John Lewis has enrolled 24 of its partners to the Bathroom Manufacturers Association (BMA) Bathroom Academy and Principles of Bathroom Design.
It follows the company’s move into fitted bathroom sales, which has started in the Milton Keynes branch, with a roll-out expected in further stores in 2013.
In order to train its partners in bathroom planning and design, John Lewis will participate in the BMA’s Bathroom Academy series of two-day training workshops, based in their stores.
The workshops will encompass both the theory and practice of bathroom planning and design, with exercises using 20-20 Fusion CAD software.
CEO of the Bathroom Manufacturers Association, Yvonne Orgill commented: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome John Lewis to the Bathroom Academy.”
She continued: “The industry guides and face-to-face workshops we offer are unique in our industry. John Lewis is investing heavily in its new bathrooms portfolio and we are really pleased that the Academy and 20-20 Technologies have been chosen as the training providers.”
The workshops start in February and will be rolled out in the Spring. For more information on the training visit www.bathroom-academy.co.uk
