Students – The ILP want you!

Aug 19, 2020 | Industry, Membership, Young Lighting Professionals

It is approaching that time of year when students are getting ready to begin an exciting new chapter of their lives.

Each September, the ILP encourages new students to take out student membership and have seen this number rise over the years with more interest being from overseas students.

It is every individual’s choice to what Institution they decide to become a part of, but the ILP are highly recommended not only by our current members but also by our previous students and tutors alike.

Our regular Hi-Lights session recently created an increase in students from different corners of the world thanks to Philip Hammond, Director and Principal at BHA Lighting and BHA School of Lighting.

A popular quote used by Philip to his students is

Procrastination is the thief of time – origin the English writer, poet and dramatist, Edward Young (1683 – 1765) – do not put off that which can be done now until later.  ENROL NOW!

A career in lighting can take on many forms; engineers, designers, manufacture, artists, sales, whatever route students decide to take, the ILP will be here to support and guide them through their lighting journey. We also have many long serving members which is testament that choosing The ILP as the Institution of choice is a great decision.

There are many benefits to Student membership with the ILP:

  • Be part of the most influential professional lighting association in the UK and Ireland.
  • Become part of the Young Lighting Professionals group – this is a part of the ILP that provides a special focus for those interested in or developing a career in lighting, provides a busy programme of events and communications, builds a strong network of lighting contacts and are all happy to share knowledge, advice, and support.
  • You will receive a digital copy of The Lighting Journal, the official magazine of the Institution that is packed with technical developments, research, case studies, new products and services, news, opinions and debates.

What will all this cost you as the student? Nothing, it is all FREE whilst you are studying but that is not all.

The ILP will not only be behind you all your way through your studies, but once you have completed and graduated from your course, we will offer you a greatly reduced membership as “affiliate” with the ILP for an additional year. For more information and to join as a student, please click here.

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.
