Property industry qualifications
Since the last awards ceremony held in October 2022, 1400 certificates have been awarded, over 400 apprenticeship assessments have been undertaken and there have been over 6000 remote exams since they were introduced in February 2023.
Propertymark Qualifications’ brand-new Level 4 Qualification, the Certificate in Property Agency Management – a cross discipline, pan-UK qualification, has had over 475 registrations since also being launched in February 2023 with the first exams having been taken in September.
Mike Smith, Head of Propertymark Qualifications comments:
“Congratulations to all our winners and finalists! With many agents and learners now becoming qualified, being highlighted as the best in their field is not only a personal accolade but a testament of their professionalism to those they work with and their clients. Using the qualifications to then join Propertymark as a member is an even greater way to demonstrate and promote higher standards within the industry.
“We are proud to have been able to showcase such outstanding achievement and determination to succeed in our annual celebration of achievement and professional development. It has been exciting this year to include many more agencies investing in qualifications and professional development in the hotly contested new categories for property agencies.”
