Engage, network and discover more with Young Planners - The RTPI's network to support young planners in their personal and professional development.

What do young planners do?

We organise events, ranging from CPD sessions and themed seminars to study tours, networking sessions and socials. We also try to arrange regular L-APC sessions to support those in their professional development journey to MRTPI.

Why should you get involved?

• Foster professional relationships
• Network with other professions
• Develop soft skills in project management & leadership
• Contributes to career progression
• Promote Planning
• Inspire the next generation
• Share experiences
• Support L-APC Candidates
• Have fun and socialise with like-minded people.

You don't have to be a member of the RTPI to join the Young Planners Network. It is free to register and open to students, licentiates or corporate member of the RTPI with up to 10 years' post-qualification experience.

Steering groups

South West Young Planner events are guided by steering groups who meet regularly to organise and discuss future activities. Steering groups are run by volunteers and always looking for new members to join. If you have an idea for an event or would like to get involved then please do get in touch.

If you are interested in getting involved with your local group please contact [email protected]

We have five active steering groups in the South West so you shouldn't be far from an opportunity to meet like-minded planners.
