Chief Planners of Tomorrow 2023 now open

We are pleased to announce that our Chief Planners of Tomorrow 2023 initiative is now open to applications. The programme is a work-shadowing scheme offering RTPI Young Planners the chance to step into the shoes of a Chief Planning Officer for the day. It’s a great way to gain confidence, an insight into a potential career progression path, and see leadership style in action.

You can see some great examples from previous participants here.

Taking a prominent role in leading a city into securing its vision would be a fascinating and rewarding career: the programme provides a unique opportunity to gain an understanding of what this might entail.
