Congratulations to TEP’s Landscape Manager Sam Marshall, who has recently passed his Landscape Institute (LI) exam to become a Chartered Landscape Architect (CMLI).
Chartered Membership is the pre-eminent standard for landscape professionals, and the qualification is awarded to those who meet only the highest standards in education and practice. Achieving Chartered Membership status takes years of dedication and resolve and represents a key career milestone for professionals working in all aspects of landscape design, planning and management.
Sam graduated from Liverpool John Moore’s University with a BA (Hons) Degree in Graphic Arts, before starting his career working for a management company, Greenbelt Group, where he was supported through his Masters in Landscape Management at the University of Sheffield. Sam joined TEP in 2019 as a Senior Landscape Manager, working within the Gateshead Land Management Team, where he works on our Estates Management Services Framework for Homes England and is involved in a range of multi-disciplinary projects for a range of clients. Sam also uses his breadth of knowledge and experience within the parks and green space sector to judge the Green Flag Awards, which are the benchmark standard for publicly accessible parks and green spaces across the UK. Sam is also a committee member of the Landscape Institute North East branch delivering regional membership services.
Sam commented, “It’s an honour to receive this accreditation in recognition of the approach to my work at such a pivotal time for the profession. The diverse range of projects I get to work on as a Landscape Manager at TEP has provided great exposure to the knowledge areas of the chartership syllabus, which has provided a strong foundation for learning, something which has been made possible by the support from my colleagues and team”.
