A town planner manages the development of cities, towns and countryside.
To become an assistant or graduate planner you may need a degree. There are various undergraduate degrees in planning that are accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). A full-time degree course takes four years, which includes a three-year BA degree and a one-year postgraduate diploma. Longer part-time courses are also available.
Senior planners start their career as an assistant/graduate planner and can become a senior planner after 2-3 years of experience. Progression may be quicker after becoming chartered with the RTPI.
Principal Planners can earn more and have increased career options. Salaries typically range depending on location and level of responsibility. Salaries and career options improve with chartered status.
