Under the leadership of the spokesperson Dr. Ute Fischer-Gäde, the working group on training met on 10 and 11 November 2017 at Leibniz Universität Hannover.
In a discussion with the university representatives, they learned about the landscape architecture courses offered in Hanover. Within the framework of the six-semester Bachelor's degree course "Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning", basic competences are taught both in open space and object planning as well as in landscape and environmental planning. This generalist, cross-sectional approach to the course is welcomed by the working group, as practice in planning offices shows that generalists who can think about and solve design and environmental science issues and planning requirements together are also needed.
Within the framework of the four-semester Master's programme, students will subsequently have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge in one of the two areas. Another special feature of the study programme in Hanover is that students study very independently and on their own responsibility with a large number of options, in contrast to the increasing schooling at other universities.
The working group also had an intensive exchange with representatives of the federal landscape student council, among other things about criteria for the choice of the place of study and the later career prospects. A large proportion of the students apparently aspire to work later in public green administration (planning office: a lot of work, little money). The working group pledges its support to the national student body when it comes to preparing the annual Landscape Students Conference, LASKO for short, which takes place in the autumn.
The AK welcomes the considerations of the bdla-speaker plant use Prof. Dr. Swantje Duthweiler to initiate a certificate in plant knowledge. The target group would initially be students. The certificate could generally help to strengthen the importance of the building material "plant". At the same time, an additional motivation would be created for students to deal intensively with the subject.
