EXAM SUCCESS: Charlotte Newton

A DALE farmer’s daughter is taking the next steps to career success.

Charlotte Newton (nee Burnett), who recently married husband Andrew, had achieved her APC (Assessment of Professional Competence) and become a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

Working for Crook-based land agents and chartered surveyors Vickers & Barrass, Mrs Newton has achieved her success after two years of professional study.

Candidates must submit a thesis and are subject to a panel interview for their final APC assessment – her area of interest is valuation and agriculture tenancies which she covered in her presentation.

She is now looking forward to settling down to married life while developing her career.

Charlotte, whose parents farm at Greenfields, near High Etherley, said: “I’m lucky to have a job I thoroughly enjoy and I am delighted to have attained professional accreditation so quickly in my career.

“Farmers and landowners across the region face a number of difficult rural and business issues on a daily basis, so my I’m looking forward to continuing to provide them with the best possible professional advice and expertise that I can.”

She went to Teesdale School Sixth Form before going onto to study for a degree in rural enterprise and land management at Harper Adams University in Shropshire.
