Royal Town Planning Institute


The Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) champions the power of planning in creating prosperous places and vibrant communities.

We represent over 24,000 members worldwide. We shape planning policy, raise professional standards and are the only body in the UK to confer chartered status to town planners, the highest professional qualification.

Nick Whittington graduated from the two-year RTPI Level 3 apprenticeship while working for New Forest District Council. He said: “I was given opportunities to explore different aspects of town planning, make decisions and go out on site visits. The support offered by colleagues was crucial in gaining confidence and the course tied in well.”

An RTPI degree apprenticeship is in development.
