Transport planner apprenticeship

Design and develop transport and travel systems

A transport planner designs and develops transport and travel systems, which are safe to operate, environmentally sustainable and take into account access needs for everyone. In this role, you’ll apply advanced theoretical knowledge and methods of transport planning, analyse and interpret complex interconnected data, utilise transport modelling and appraisal techniques, determine the key outputs from proposed plans and how they meet customer specifications and fulfil local and national policies, and evaluate the impact of possible transport solutions. Transport planners now increasingly integrate new technologies that improve the management of transport systems to make more informed forecasts, support intelligent mobility and change people’s attitudes to travel. You’ll link transport on a local to international scale, which helps shape the future of towns and cities, support economic growth, protect the environment, and improve social cohesion. On completion of the transport planner apprenticeship, you’ll achieve a bachelor’s degree in transport planning.
