Featured Reviews for Schools, Organisations and Associations

The Society of British & International Design
Schools, Organisations and Associations
8 August 2014
“The Society of British & International Design are forward thinking standard bearer for the Interior Design industry and surrounding services.

Interior Design Collective
Schools, Organisations and Associations
3 February 2020
“I was invited to join the IDC back in Jan 2018 and I have to say it has been one of the best things I have done for my business. The IDC is a knowledgeable, supportive and inspiring bunch of like-minded designers who share learnings, provide moral support and genuinely encourage excellence. What's more, members benefit from amazing trade partnerships - not only do we receive special IDC trade rates, but trade partners often run workshops and allow us early access to new products. I cannot recommend highly enough.”
Stone Federation Great Britain
Schools, Organisations and Associations
2 June 2015
“Barwin have been members of Stone Federation. The Federation promotes the use of natural stone as a building material in favour of other building materials.”
KLC School of Design
Schools, Organisations and Associations
25 August 2016
“Having studied as a full time diploma student in 2006/2007, I can without hesitation say this was the single most best investment I ever made. A former HR Manager I wanted change. I wanted to do something for myself that I felt was a hobby I could turn into a career. I never looked back! Without a doubt the toughest year with intense workload but the thrill, energy and buzz you get from your colleagues on the same journey as yourself, all giving something up to succeed and follow a dream, beyond worth it. Hard work, oh yes! More than you ever imagined, yes! Worth it, 100% The KLC family and they do become family are not only top of their game, they care, they know how the industry works because they've worked it and continue to do so. Incredibly professional and going the extra mile at every juncture I could not recommend the school in any higher regard. I celebrate being qualified in 2 weeks for 9 years and 8 years in business! Would I do the course again, absolutely! How does the industry view KLC, as the best there is! Rebecca Leivars, founder of LEIVARS.”
British Institute of KBB Installation
Schools, Organisations and Associations
27 May 2019
“This definitely is a five star organization. Liberty Fitting Service Ltd have been members of the BiKBBI for over ten years now. The benefits of this membership for Liberty have been enormous and we feel that a big part of the success of our company is definitely due to the association with the BiKBBI. Membership will pay for itself, not only through the tax relief received from the government but also through jobs / contracts won, with the client gaining greater confidence in your company because of this association. The Institute is on the ground fighting for the KBB installation industry every day, helping to make it more professional, more secure and safer. If you are in the part of the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom installation industry, you need to be part of the BiKBBI.”
Assoc. of Professional Declutterers & Organisers
Schools, Organisations and Associations
24 April 2017
“I'm a member of APDO and cannot rate highly enough the support it gives to the growing number of declutterers and professional organisers in the UK. Being part of this professional body gives us access to training, support, mentioning and publicity to help us do the very best for our clients.”
Timber Decking and Cladding Association
Schools, Organisations and Associations
26 February 2018
“The TDCA is a fantastic resource for any project that involves timber decking with guidance on specifying, installing and maintaining timber. As a supplier of non-slip timber decking, the TDCA DeckMark quality assurance scheme helps us to demonstrate the quality of our products to potential clients and maintains a high and recognised national standard for timber decking. Any questions or concerns over the safe specification or installation of timber decking we recommend you get in touch with the TDCA.”
