TPS currently runs the TPP qualification jointly with CIHT as well as its own Professional Development Scheme (PDS).  We currently have two new opportunities for TPS members who are interested in helping us develop skills for the future. 

The first is for someone to replace our long standing PDS Reviews Manager, Keith Youngman.  Keith has supported the PDS for almost a decade including crucial work on revising the core documentation, drafting Advice Notes, and setting up the Review system.  This post has a central function in running the PDS and contributing to skills work, as well as a hands on role attending reviews and participating in PDS meetings and webinars.  As well as travel expenses there is remuneration for core tasks and also for specific attendances such as reviews and training reviewers.  Any senior transport planner who is interested in becoming a reviewer should in the first instance contact the Director for Skills on skills@tps.org.uk

The second is in our PDS review team where we need experienced practitioners who can undertake reviews to support trainees along their way and then participate in the final review process to assess whether candidates have successfully met the completion criteria.  This involves around 8-10 days a year visiting employers and seeing up to 3 trainees per visit, plus some preparation and follow up work.  The current team works across the UK and any senior transport planner who is interested in becoming a reviewer should in the first instance contact the Director for Skills on skills@tps.org.uk.  As well as travel expenses there is remuneration for conducting trainee reviews.

TPS Skills Director, Keith Buchan said:

We want to support all transport planners in progressing their careers.  This is an exciting time for transport planning qualifications.  The PDS clearly plays a key part in their development and we hope TPS members will be able to help in this important work.    Please get in touch!
