An immersive training programme

During your time in the Planner Academy, you’ll learn about the way we build our network, how to check it’s been planned correctly and how to make sure our final designs reflect the final build and any adjustments we had to make. Starting with the basics of our network, we’ll build your knowledge in stages, helping you understand the processes we follow and how your role fits into CityFibre.

Just a heads up – you’ll spend the first 4 weeks of the programme at our central training location in Milton Keynes, followed by 4 weeks split between Milton Keynes and other locations, so you may need to spend some time away from home.
