Who's it for?

Our masterclasses are primarily aimed at a UK audience of planning professionals, but international colleagues are very welcome to attend, hear about best practice in the UK and share their own experiences. All masterclasses are delivered in English. 


All our masterclasses are delivered through an interactive three-hour webinar followed by a shorter 1.5 hour, interactive webinar approximately 5 weeks later. We recommend allowing at least one day before the first webinar to familiarise yourself with the materials and the technology for the course. There will also be a dedicated learning area for this masterclass inside RTPI Learn. It will be open for three months for structured, reflective activities with your trainer and other delegates before, during and after the live webinars. By the end of this course you will have top tips and techniques to apply in your workplace.

Delegate numbers are restricted to 25 to enhance learning outcomes. Bookings will close one week before each masterclass, to allow time for you to complete the pre-webinar activities and for the trainer to then edit the course based on your input.  


If you have any issues with booking tickets then please contact us and we may be able to release more places from certain categories.
