The RTPI has today launched a refreshed programme of tailored training courses beginning in January 2018. Members and built environment professionals will be able to book courses from today.
Roisin Willmott OBE FRTPI, RTPI Cymru Director, who is leading its development, said:
“Planning is an ever evolving profession and our members are held in high regard for their up-to-date expertise. Our refreshed training programme is another way we are supporting our members to develop their skills and assist them in taking the next step in their career.”
An in-house dedicated team have been working with subject experts to design, improve and deliver a high-quality programme of over 40 masterclasses and briefings for 2018. All courses can contribute towards RTPI members’ individual CPD and will be available in nine locations across the UK: Belfast, Birmingham, Cambridge, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Leeds, London, Manchester and Nottingham. This training will be complementary to the RTPI’s current programme of events available through the RTPI Regions and Nations, which will continue as normal.
Led by subject experts, courses will help planners expand their technical knowledge and skills, gain inspiration and an understanding of all the latest developments. Topics include planning law updates, the future direction of local plans, and environmental impact assessments.
Bringing the training programme in-house means that the RTPI can pass on substantial savings. Prices for 2018 onwards will start from as little as £199 + VAT.
