APG Young Planners exists for four reasons:
To help those new to Planning develop the basic skills of the trade.
To help Young Planners meet and get to know one another, and build up their own personal network.
To be a space, away from their offices and bosses where Young Planners can feel like they can ask any question.
To give Young Planners access to insights and ideas from the best Planning minds to really inspire them.
YOUNG PLANNER MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME 2022
This year we are continuing our Young Planner Mentorship Programme. This is designed for planners with 0-3 years experience in the industry.
It’s a chance to spend an evening with top planners and peers and walk away with some wisdom and advice pertinent to your situation or needs. There are 10-12 spots in each session and you'll be able to get your tickets here through the site or through our email notifications. If you are interested in attending, you can join the mailing list here.
During the event, you will have two 25 minute sessions with experienced senior planners and one 20 minute session with a keynote speaker.

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!"
