Graduate & Placement Opportunities

Our Graduate Progression Programme manages people through the transition from education to becoming a chartered surveyor.

  • Graduate Progression Programme (GPP)

    This programme has been influenced and developed with the valuable input of our younger generation who have recently been through this journey.

    Complementing your everyday on the job training, the GPP is a comprehensive and structured programme which starts when you join Turner & Townsend alinea and ends when you sit your final assessment. It is geared towards developing you as a professional and ensuring a smooth and successful APC journey, ultimately achieving chartership and becoming a professional surveyor.

  • GPP Support

    The GPP is a key part of your progression and is supported by the following streams to aid your development:

    • Comprehensive supervisor and councillor involvement ensuring a wide-ranging workload
    • Turner & Townsend alinea Forum – discussion group on key APC topics
    • Extensive CPD programme
    • Thorough Final Assessment preparation
    • Mock interviews from in-house APC assessors
    • Active management of your project work to ensure a depth and breadth of experience
  • Placement Opportunities

    Further to our GPP we offer Year Out and Summer Placement opportunities. Year Out positions are designed for students between their second and third year of study. They offer a great opportunity to experience an extended work placement in addition to the chance to start the APC ahead of returning to university. Summer Placements last between 6-8 weeks for students in the summer prior to commencing their final year of study. They allow students to enjoy an insight into alinea and the QS role through a fulfilling and constructive period in the workplace.
