Young Planners

The RTPI Young Planners' Networks provide a wide variety of activities and services at a national and regional level.

As a young planner you have access to CPD, lectures, social and networking events, all targeted at (and organised by) planners in the early stages of their career. It is the ideal way to build a strong network of colleagues and friends. You can also sign up to receive news and notifications of events through mailing lists and social networks.

Are you a Young Planner?

If you have less than ten years' post-qualification experience you are a "Young Planner". So, whatever age you are when you join the planning profession, you will not miss the chance to take advantage of the benefits and support offered.
