RTPI Apprenticeships Gain Government Support

31st January 2017

Edgars Limited, are passionate about what we do and are excited to have the opportunity to work with the RTPI in developing its proposal for a Chartered Town Planner apprenticeship pathway for entry into the profession.

Taking advantage of the Government’s Trailblazer Degree Apprenticeships scheme, this innovative model brings together the best of higher and vocational education.

We are pleased to announce that the government has listed the Chartered Town Planner apprenticeship proposal and is now asking for views of the sector; and wishes to see the level of interest and need for a distinct town planning pathway before agreeing to the next stage.

The government consultation closes on the 5th February 2017. The following link will take you to the RTPI article and has the link to the government consultation survey:
