Planning apprentices are seen as a great way to bring new talent into the Planning Sector from a range of backgrounds and as an easy solution to recruitment woes. However unlike traditional employees apprentices require additional support and have additional requirements to meet their education and accreditation commitments. A planning apprenticeship has two entry points and can typically take 3 to 6 years of on the job training, day-release degree programme, and assessment of professional competency leading to a Masters in Town Planning and Chartered Status.

With this webinar we explore the process with one of the leading practitioners for planning apprentices, The Planning Inspectorate. The Planning Inspectorate currently have 8 planning apprentices at a variety of stages in their apprenticeships and are keen to share their lessons on how employees and employers can make the most of the process.
