KLC has extensive links within the interior and garden design professions.
These have been steadily built up since the school was founded with designers, suppliers, manufacturers, specialists and other professionals in the field, including some of the leading names in design, contributing to the courses.
A vital source of potential work shadowing, internships and employment, these links also provide a source of lecturers and support tutors who play an important role in the delivery, teaching and learning experience of the students overall.
This genuinely collaborative engagement with professional practitioners in turn ensures that course content is up to date with current skills, knowledge and methods of practice and these contacts are frequently a source of exciting design projects for students to undertake during their course.
Our staff are closely involved with both the Society of Garden Designers and the British Institute of Interior Design (including KLC's Principal, Jenny Gibbs, as a past President) and KLC students are encouraged to join these professional associations.
We are also very grateful to the generous Industry Sponsors of our annual Graduation Ceremony, which makes the occasion very special and memorable for our graduates.
