As the professional body for the landscape sector, it is the Landscape Institute’s role to continually reflect the changing needs of landscape practitioners, helping them remain trusted, relevant and successful, today and in the future.
After a period of research starting in 2017 the LI has been working with our sector to develop a new framework that reflects current and emerging areas of landscape practice. This framework will be used to underpin the routes to membership. These professional membership grades offer a home for landscape practitioners across a wide range of fields of practice from landscape designers to parks managers and are the standards that enable the sector to be at the forefront of the fight against climate change and guardians of the natural and built environment.
Alongside this we’ve been working to improve the routes to entry, reviewing the membership grades and support programmes for those looking to enter the industry. This has included the introduction of apprenticeships and routes that value experience in the industry as you work towards a professional membership.
