Good practice guide for CABE

About this project

The Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) commissioned me to produce a good practice guide to green space apprenticeships. To gather material for the guide, I attended a series of one-day workshops that CABE organised in London, Bristol and Manchester. I then developed the structure for the guide and wrote the content, including a number of case studies to illustrate good practice. The guide was published online and in print.


We are facing an acute shortage of people with the skills needed to plan, design, manage and maintain our parks and green spaces. Apprenticeships are a key element in addressing this skills shortage and improving the benefits and value of our green space. The Guide to green space apprenticeships is for managers and supervisors who deliver green space services for local authorities, landscape contractors, social landlords and third sector organisations.
