student enrichment programme
The BALI Chalk Fund has been a great supporter of the GoLandscape initiative since its inception and subsequent launch.
The trustees have committed significant funding to establish this bold initiative and are excited about what the future holds. The relationship was further strengthened when trustees developed a student Enrichment Programme in partnership with GoLandscape. The student enrichment programme aims to make good use of the combined skills and resources available in the UK’s land-based colleges and the wider training network to provide up to date, hands-on, industry-led training for the future of the landscape industry.
The BALI GoLandscape Enrichment programme is designed to maximise the power in every pound spent, by working closely with land-based colleges and training providers throughout the UK, the BALI Chalk Fund have been able to apply the finance at precisely the right stage in the student's development to gain maximum returns. Funding the registration and assessment for industry recognised accreditation enables the students to become the next generation of work-ready, confident, industry entrants.

“GoLandscape and the BALI Chalk Fund have significant overlap in our objectives and we see huge potential in GoLandscape as a vehicle for delivering our ground breaking enrichment programme in conjunction with BALI member colleges. The industry is crying out for work ready graduates and we believe that together we can deliver this to the lasting benefit of the landscape sector”
