Royal Town Planning Institute logo 19-20 2

The Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) is the largest professional body for town planners in the UK and Europe and represents members in over 80 countries worldwide. The Institute has been shaping planning policy and raising professional standards for over 100 years and is the only body in the UK to confer chartered status to planners, the highest professional qualification.

Planning impacts on our daily lives to change the world for the better! Qualified town planners make a real difference to the places we live in and are in high demand. They shape our cities, towns and villages, work to protect our natural environment and historic buildings and plan for the delivery of new homes, offices, schools, parks, and transport and energy facilities.

There is a choice of two RTPI apprenticeships. You can become professionally qualified while working and studying via the L7 Chartered Town Planner apprenticeship or enter the profession as an assistant via the Level 4 Town Planning Assistant apprenticeship programme.
