APG Young Planners exists for four reasons:

 

Basic Skills

To help those new to Planning develop the basic skills of the trade.

 

Social Space

To help Young Planners meet and get to know one another, and build up their own personal network.

Safe Environment

To be a space, away from their offices and bosses where Young Planners can feel like they can ask any question.

 

Inspiration

To give Young Planners access to insights and ideas from the best Planning minds to really inspire them.

What previous mentees have to say about the programme:

"I've honestly learnt so much from them and I feel like they've helped build my confidence too, even just in asking questions."

"It's been great having the chance to meet other planners, both for advice and also to meet others at my level too."

"It's a fantastic programme and I'm very grateful I've had the chance to be involved!"
