Qualification organisation Occupational Awards has been working closely with the furniture industry to develop a suite of new qualifications at Level 2.

These qualifications cover a range of occupations within the industry, including for the first time Bed Making, Modern Furniture Service Repair and Foam Conversion and Upholstery Cushion Interior Manufacture. 

Lisa Williamson, managing director at OAL said: “I am really excited to launch these new qualifications for the industry. The new occupations covered will enable employers in previously unserved areas upskill their existing employers and train new staff that are required to keep the industry thriving.”
