LIGHTSCENE: Can we save lighting engineers from extinction?

Lightscene 2019 took place on Thursday 17 October 2019 from 10:00 until 16:00 at Uttoxeter Racecourse.

It was a day of discovery, technology-rich insights, design inspiration and the opportunity to gain CPD hours and make networking connections.

The event encompassed CPD talks exploring this challenging question.

We looked at subjects such as:

  • The changing role of the lighting professional
  • Can a Local Authority manage without engineers?
  • Should we embrace insourcing?
  • Addressing challenges which the incoming generation face
  • What the National Lighting Survey tells us
  • Does Engineering Council have an obligation to fulfil?
  • Where does this leave professional registration, CPD and Competence
  • How should we upskill non-technical staff
  • Techniques to build the knowledge required to ensure successful asset management – particularly for individuals from a non-lighting background

Details of the next LIGHTSCENE are coming soon.

The ILP seeks to be as inclusive as possible, so if you have any concerns about applying for membership / attending our Exterior Lighting Diploma courses, LDC local events or our one-day courses for whatever reason please let us know and we will try to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that you can fully engage with the ILP.
