SBID pioneered engagement between universities and industry in the UK in its founding year, until that time education and employment had not overlapped or engaged and so SBID was appointed to assess national interior design course content for suitability to the corporate environment. It remains the unique design body with this credential. Ten years on, the ten SBID regions covering the nation each have direct university connections to SBID amounting to 97 universities engaged with SBID by 2018. By 2019 each regional location was recognised with a centre of excellence and collectively these locations represent a diverse offer of courses at varying levels of expertise to provide education and training for everyone regardless of personal limitations.
SBID separates its accrediation into 3 tiers, Recognised, Accredited and Centres of Excellence.
SBID Accredited universities are those who have had their courses measured and officially accredited ensuring each course meets all-inclusive standards. SBID assesses how fit-for-purpose tuition transfers to the commercial world and interprets the data into a ‘standard’ fed back into the treasury.
