New 50 Shades of Planning Podcast – Episode 20: APC, easy as 123.

It has been 20 years since Sam Stafford graduated and began his career, and is wary of becoming a world-weary, cynical member of the town planning establishment. He seeks to recapture some of his zest by chatting in this episode to three newly and soon-to-be qualified planners about the first few years of their careers.

In this episode Sam is joined by:

Charles Jones, Pegasus
Cathy O’Toole, Pegasus
Tillie Baker, Arup

Cathy and Tillie were commended by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) for their Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) submissions in 2019 and this episode may be of particular interest to anybody currently pursuing the Associate and Licentiate routes to RTPI membership.

BECG proudly supports the 50 Shades of Planning Podcast from Samuel Stafford, Regional Strategic Land Director at Barratt Developments.
