Former customer service assistant Greta Gurnaite has plans to open up her own interior design business and it’s all thanks to the professional development she gained on the HNC Interior Design Level 4 at Kensington and Chelsea College.

Originally from Lithuania, Greta came to London at the age of 19 and started off working as a customer service assistant. Having attended art school for 5 years in Lithuania, Greta knew she wanted to pursue art and design and enrolled on a Graphic Design Level 1 course. It was not long after that she was introduced to Head of Interior Design: Alya Rizvi, who realised she had the skills and potential to enrol on an Interior Design Diploma Level 3.

“I wanted to go down a course route that would prepare me for work without having to go to University. I believe progressing onto the HNC Interior Design Level 4 has given me that opportunity. I now feel that I have the confidence and industry knowledge to embark on my own career in Interior Design. The course has taught me so much more than just technique skills. It’s taught me how to manage my money, the importance of time management, and how to work with industry materials.”
