Young planners

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 us. It is free to register and open to any student, licentiate or corporate member of the RTPI (or non-member planner) with up to 10 years' post-qualification experience.
