What will I be doing?
This qualification will give you extensive knowledge in property sales, with on the job training by industry professionals.
Having moved up from a customer service or administration role in level 2, level 3 will get you out and about, conducting and organising your own viewings, and valuing and marketing properties for sale. You will also be negotiating prices with potential buyers and the property seller.
This apprenticeship will involve tasks such as:
- Negotiating the sale of properties in England, Wales and Northern Ireland
- Taking over marketing activities for the sale of properties
- Monitoring changes in the property market and evaluating their impact
- Organising visits around development sites
- Providing after-sale support to property buyers
- Developing marketing materials for the promotion of the agency’s services
What qualifications will I achieve?
You will achieve a Level 3 City & Guilds Certificate in Property (Sale of Residential Property) and if required, Level 3 Functional Skills in Mathematics and English.
The qualification continues on from the foundation of knowledge you will have learned on the Level 2 apprenticeship, giving you substantial training to become an asset to any business in the industry.
What are the entry requirements?
As the Level 3 apprenticeship requires more extensive knowledge of the industry, it is recommended that you first complete the Level 2 in Property Sales.
However, there are exceptions for those that can show at least a year’s worth of experience and knowledge on the industry, but this depends on the choice of the employer.
What can I do afterwards?
This qualification will give you the knowledge and experience to work with confidence in the property sector, including estate agent jobs, and investment and property development roles.
This has been an amazing opportunity for me, which has given me the chance to gain hands on experience, and work towards a qualification in Residential Sales. I know that learning and understanding the business and industry inside out will open many doors for myself. I think being able to start a career at my age is a great achievement, which I’m very grateful for. Without the support of Babington and Connells, I feel that I wouldn’t have been where I am today.
Apprenticeships have allowed us to attract many smart new recruits into our business in all different departments, and we now have many apprentices moving up the career ladder. Many are progressing and moving up the career ladder very quickly. The support team at Babington do just that – ‘support’. Not only do they support us as the employer, but they ensure individual apprentices can flourish and develop in a way other employees sometimes do not.
