Chartered membership of the Landscape Institute is the pre-eminent standard for professionals working in all aspects of landscape design, planning, management, science, and urban design. Chartership confirms that you have met the highest standards in both education and practice and it acknowledges your commitment to both professional integrity and the maintenance of this standard through continued professional development.
In an increasingly competitive and diverse profession, Chartered membership provides the opportunity to develop your career and increase your earning potential. Chartered membership is an internationally recognised qualification, providing additional career development opportunities.
As a Chartered professional your advice and opinion is recognised and respected by both colleagues and clients. In addition, your Chartered status enables you to give evidence at public inquiries, where your professional opinion will be called upon and respected.
Most employers look for Chartered status, or a commitment to achieving it, as an indication of quality and professionalism when recruiting new staff, and will often restrict the management of larger projects and contracts to those in the organisation who are fully qualified.
