We would still really appreciate your feed-back on our proposed plans for 2022. The survey is still open and a £25 Amazon voucher (or alternative if you'd prefer) is up for grabs

Our first member blog...
SoLR member Dr. Thanasis Skentos has published an article titled 'Land Referencing; Are we still Geographers?' which takes a closer look at our identity.
Thanks Thanasis for sharing this. It would be great to see more articles like so please get in touch if you have something to share.
It would also be great to see some conversation on the topics presented - there is a comment section at the end.
We have apprenticeship vacancies open across 3 organizations, 1 more has already closed and 3 more are planning to release over the next month or so. These are amazing opportunities to start a rewarding career, so if you have the opportunity to promote these, please do.
Huge thanks to colleagues at NCATI for showcasing the Land Referencer Apprenticeship at The NEC What Career? What University? event on Friday and Saturday (4/5 mar), with lot's of interest shown from potential apprentices as well as post-grads planning their move into industry. We will also be represented at the Walsall Works Expo on Thursday 24 March.
