“I started the Housing/Property Management level 3 Apprenticeship with the Apprentice Academy in August 2019. Going into the course, I didn’t quite know what to expect and didn’t have much knowledge about the property industry at all. Now, since I have started the course alongside my apprenticeship, I have gained a huge amount of knowledge in a short space of time. This is thanks to my coach Steve who has delivered excellent workshops and been very clear with any information given to me whether it be at the academy or in the 1 to 1 meetings. Steve is always happy to answer any queries that I may have regarding the course.” Matthew Will, Property Apprentice, EMS (Estate Management Solutions)
“As a medium sized firm of Property Managers training and development can often be problematic for us. For this reason the opportunity to provide training and Professional Accreditation for junior staff is proving invaluable. I have been delighted to see the progress being made and how the coach, Steve, has engaged everyone through workshop presentations and 1-2-1 support visits. The benefits to the business are very clear, with the apprenticeship culminating in a Level 3 qualification and IRPM accreditation and here at Scanlans we look forward to continuing this relationship, with new learners already earmarked for the next induction day.” Ian Magenis, Scanlans Property Management
“I started the Housing/Property Management level 3 Apprenticeship with the Apprentice Academy in August 2019. Before the course started I was very nervous as I do not do well in an exam/test environment and it has been some time since I left education. Since starting the course I do not know what I was nervous about! The course is presented very well and the support we receive from Steve is fantastic. I have every confidence that we will all pass with flying colours.” Emma Plews, Maintenance Surveyor, Watsons
“I have been working at Peaks & Plains and studying with the Apprentice Academy for many months now. Everyone I’ve met, been taught by has been amazing and supportive. From my first day I haven’t met one dull person from the Apprentice Academy unlike every other educational provider I’ve been to, especially university where the people had the personalities of a brown paper bag. Not only are the people I have met from the Apprentice Academy been entertaining and fun but they are always very engaging.” Kieran Stockton, Asset Apprentice, Peaks and Plains Housing Association
