Designer’s Muse: Education – Bridging the Gap

Last month we interviewed 3rd year students from Rycotewood Furniture College just as they were about to make the jump from being students to graduates. in this latest edition of The Designer’s Muse we explore how we can bridge the gap between education and industry.

Later in the month we will be exploring this further with proffesionals from the industry including Mark Barrell of Boss Design and Richard Stevens of ForPeople.

What do you think the issues are? what does the industry need to do to improve the transition from education?
