The BALI Chalk Fund has been a supporter of the GoLandscape initiative since its inception and subsequent launch in 2016. The trustees have committed significant funding to establish the pilot phase of the initiative and are excited about what the future holds.
The trustees recognise the importance of the GoLandscape brand to the success of the initiative and have therefore teamed up to deliver their innovative student enrichment programme under the GoLandscape banner rather than diluting the impact with a self-branded project.
“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”
- Peter Jennins OBE
BALI Chalk Fund Chairman
The student enrichment programme aims to make good use of the combined skills and resources available in the UK’s land-based college network and the BALI affiliate members to provide up to date, hands on, industry led training for the future of the landscape industry. As well as co-ordinating a series of master classes at partner colleges, we aim to fund registration and assessment fees for certain accredited courses that are too often completed yet go unrecognised for the sake of a modest fee that both the college and the student can ill afford.
