About us

East Devon is independently recognised as an outstanding place and so it follows that its council must also strive to be outstanding. Everything we do is aimed at ensuring that East Devon is a place that people want to live in, work in, visit and enjoy. Our ambition is to be an outstanding council which works together with local people to create great value services and an outstanding community, economy and environment for East Devon, now and for future generations. We understand that University is not for everyone and we aim to provide supportive apprenticeship opportunities which allow people to kick start their career whilst combining work with study without costly University fees.

About the role

In conjunction with Bridgewater and Taunton College we are looking for 2 apprentices that are interested in Town Planning as a career but want to go straight into work and study part-time for a level 3 in Town Planning and Construction.

Town Planning is a profession dedicated to the creation of attractive places to live. It is an exciting and growing profession about where buildings are built, what they look like, the open spaces around them and the roads, schools and other infrastructure needed to support them.

Our apprenticeship is aimed at those without a degree but you should have a minimum of 5 GCSE's with Maths and English at a C or above, and 2 A Levels, one preferably in Geography but this is not a necessity. You’ll attend Bridgewater College on day release every other week for 2 years. You’ll be expected to take ownership of your learning to ensure you get the most of this fantastic opportunity. Planning has a great career path and successful completion of this course is the first step to RTPI membership If you have what it takes you could have a long and successful future with East Devon District Council,
our planning professionals will work alongside you to support you to build your knowledge and skills and work towards gaining the necessary qualifications.
