LI Committees

The LI’s three standing committees offer general guidance on all areas of the LI’s work, while subcommittees and working groups focus on more specialised areas including awards, editorial and financial.

The three committees are:

  1. Education and Membership Committee
  2. Policy and Communications Committee
  3. Technical and Research Committee

Education and Membership Committee

The Education and Membership Committee develops policy and provides expertise and advice on all issues relating to education and continuing professional development (CPD).

The committee also advises on the standards of entry for the LI’s membership grades, in support of the LI’s objectives. Responsibilities include careers and progression, the accreditation and review of higher education programmes, mechanics of qualifying for chartership, and promoting a culture of lifelong learning in the profession to ensure high standards of practice. More details can be found in the terms of reference.

Policy and Communications Committee

The Policy Committee consists of LI members and is directly supported by the Director of Policy and Communications and the Head of Policy. The main responsibilities of the committee are leading on the direction and content of the LI’s position statements; leading the development of LI responses to public policy consultations; and representing the LI at external events.

More on the committee’s role is given in the Policy Committee Terms of Reference.

Technical and Research Committee

The Technical and Research Committee (usually referred to as Technical Committee) develops information, guidance, and advice for members and staff on technical and professional matters.  It also suggests the content of courses and events.
