The graduates, each of whom have strong academic backgrounds in planning, overcame significant competition to be accepted onto the programme.
As part of GL Hearn’s graduate programme, they will each complete rotations in different disciplines in Planning concluding in the attainment of the Licentiate Assessment of Professional Competence (L-APC), which is the main route to becoming a Chartered Town Planner for graduates who have completed a fully accredited Royal Town Planning Institute accredited degree.
Graduates also benefit from professional mentoring and will be assigned supervisors to help them through the L-APC.
The four graduates are:
- Yordanka Yordanova recently graduated from UCL with an MSc in urban regeneration, having previously secured a BSc Joint Honours in geography and urban and regional planning from the University of Birmingham. Yordanka is now in GL Hearn’s economics team.
- Kelly McCann originally completed a BA in geography at the University of Leeds with a year’s international study at the University of Ilinois, and then an MSc in urban design and city planning at UCL. Kelly has joined the infrastructure planning team at the company.
