Become a Learning through Landscapes Accredited Professional and help improve access to outdoor learning and play in your area!
Our next Transforming Learning course is on January 14th 2021 – join us for expert learning and advice and for the chance to join our accredited network!
Why should you join the LtL accredited professional network?
The professional network is a group of some of the most respected and experienced professionals in school grounds and outdoor learning across the UK and internationally. The network enables all members to keep up to date with current practice, creative ideas and opportunities.
LtL has the ability to quality assure the advice, guidance and services provided to schools and other settings through its accredited network members. This also gives schools and other settings confidence in the standard of service they will receive.
As our project portfolio, consultancy and training work continue to grow, we frequently contract out work to our network members. We can never guarantee work in your locality but as an advocate for LtL we would encourage you to be instrumental in growing work opportunities for your local area too.

- Connect with a formidable network school outdoor learning and play consultants across the UK and the world
