Today the British Institute of
Interior Design (BIID) launches its new online e-learning platform, the BIID
Knowledge Hub. In a first for the industry, this cloud-based online
platform will host a wide range of educational content to foster the learning
and development of interior designers and interior design students. Users can
register and access the content on the platform free of charge.

“The BIID has developed the new BIID
Knowledge Hub to deliver flexible, online learning for interior designers. We
understand the time constraints interior designers are often under so we wanted
to create a solution for Continuing Professional Development (CPD), which was
easily accessible” comments Susie Rumbold, President of the BIID. “This
platform is designed to complement the wide range of live learning events we
already offer, such as seminars, workshops and our flagship Annual Conference.”

The BIID Knowledge Hub provides the
ultimate flexible education for designers, allowing them to improve their skills, knowledge and expertise
at their own pace. The
BIID has partnered with a range of organisations, such as trade bodies, educational
establishments and charities, to provide accredited learning for the
platform. These include the UK Green Building Council, CEDIA, the Furniture
Industry Research Association (FIRA), the British Woodworking Federation,
Dominic Schuster, Spiral Cellars, Natural Stone Projects, GoodWeave, the Wood Window
Alliance, and Swedish Wood.

Suitable for designers working on
residential and commercial projects, the long term aim of the Knowledge Hub is
to provide a wide range of content on all areas of interior design, including project
case studies, specifying products and finishes, regulations and
legislation, health and safety, sustainability, inclusive design, professional
practice and more.

The BIID is also inviting any individuals or organisations who would
like to share their knowledge or expertise to get in touch to find out how they
can get involved.
