Are you preparing your APC, or thinking about taking this next step in your career? Of course, knowing where to start can be a bit daunting.  With this in mind, the RTPI Membership Team and RTPI NE Young Planners are holding an event in Newcastle to help you with this.

You will need to work hard to pass your APC, however we hope that you would find attending this session will complement what you have learnt so far and help you towards taking the next step in your career.

This event will be led by RTPI NE YP Committee Chair, Emily Thomson, Senior Planner at Lichfields who will share her experience, what worked best for her when completing her APC as well as tips and lessons learnt.  We will also hear from Neil Pearce, Membership Assessment Manager at RTPI and provide an opportunity to get an insight into the top tips for a successful APC submission and how to avoid some of the common pitfalls.  (This presentation will be given virtually).  There will an opportunity to ask questions both during and after the presentations.  

Refreshments will be served in the 6.02 Henry Daysh Building from 5.30pm with a prompt 5.45pm start.

This event will also present an opportunity to meet and talk with likeminded planning professionals and students in the North East
