Volunteers

We welcome volunteers from the property industry from a range of disciplines including surveyors, planners, developers, lawyers, accountants and architects.

Volunteers

Volunteers are an important part of UrbanPlan UK. Students and teachers are overwhelmingly positive about their contribution: 90% agreed the volunteers were a valuable part of the experience.

As the workshop is led by professional facilitators, the volunteers’ time is spent engaging with the students and offering professional advice one to-one or with small groups. In addition, they lead the judging process: listening to the student presentations, offering feedback, and choosing a winning team.

EdComs  run training sessions for volunteers to help prepare them for their role. A volunteering handbook  supplements the face-to-face training with practical guidance and advice.

We welcome  volunteers from the property industry from a range of disciplines including surveyors, planners, developers, lawyers, accountants and architects.

We ask volunteers  to commit circa 1 -2  days  as follows:

  • Preparatory reading (approx. 2 hours)
  • Volunteer training (1/2 day)
  • Workshop delivery  (1 day)

We  are keen to have volunteers who are willing to travel if necessary. If you would like to get involved, register your interest here and we will be in touch with more information. PLEASE NOTE: Priority is given to ULI members and the staff of funding partners when allocating volunteering opportunities.

Please email urbanplan@edcoms.co.uk if you are interested in volunteering.
