TMLI and the E2T50 - 2nd Cohort now open!
Lucy Pickford posted a topic in AnnouncementsLast year saw our first cohort of apprentices start on their course as they work to becoming Technician Members of the Landscape Institute and in January we introduced the next route of membership for this grade - the experienced route to Technician (E2T). Our first cohort for the pilot scheme saw 28 amazing candidates from a range of different backgrounds. We're keen to keep the momentum of this going forward and have now opened up expressions of interest for the 2nd cohort on the pilot scheme. The Technician grade looks to bring equity to the profession. We want to future-proof landscape with the technical and specialist skills that are so integral to the work that we do. This means making sure these individuals have the right support and training tailored for their career. If you're interested in this for yourself, or know of any technical specialists in need of a professional home who might be interested in joining this cohort, read more, submit your expression of interest, or join us at our next information session.

The February edition of Landscape will look at the successes and failures in planning, managing and designing environments that respond to the needs of all communities. It will ask what makes a landscape feel welcoming; explore the expertise to make this happen; and consider how places and spaces become inclusive and equally welcoming to the widest range of those who use, explore and navigate through them. One area of particular interest is the workings of the Equalities Act 2010. This prohibits direct and indirect in discrimination in many fields including in the provision of services and facilities by public authorities. There remain many areas where public authorities have yet to apply these principles especially in the provision of parks and other public spaces. The Equality Act 2010 mandates the Public Sector Equality Duty which is designed to ‘bring about a culture change so that promoting equality becomes part of public bodies’ core business.’* If you have experience of using the Equality Act and the Public Sector Equality Duty in challenging current practice and you would like to contribute on this topic, please contact the editor Paul Lincoln – firstname.lastname@example.org *Government Equalities Office (2009b) The Equality Bill, Making it Work.
