HomeLet, the specialist land and tenant insurance provider and tenant referencing service, has announced that it is to sponsor the Bloom Apprenticeship Academy for Estate and Letting Agents
The Apprenticeship Academy, which launches with its first intake of young people in October in Birmingham, aims to deliver the next generation of well educated, commercially-aware estate and letting agents to help promote professionalism in the industry.
Working in close partnership with forward-thinking estate and letting agencies, The Bloom Apprenticeship Academy hand picks tomorrow's potential performers who seek vocational training as an alternative to university. The apprentices then attend an intensive six-month training course, which is split between classroom-based training at the Bloom Apprenticeship Academy and as an employee of their supporting estate agency in the field.
Successful apprentices qualify with impressive credentials - a National Federation of Property Professionals (NFOPP) Technical Award in sales or lettings, a Level 3 NVQ assessment, a European Computer Driving Licence and competence working with portals and agency software
HomeLet's MD, John Boyle, said, "Our partnership with the Bloom Apprenticeship Academy is a great way of helping to shape the future of our industry whilst supporting the next generation of letting agents. There are many young people who seek an intelligent route to employment that allows them to hit the ground running and we're proud to play our part in this."
Bloom's MD, Gary Redmonds, commented that "HomeLet's sponsorship will not only help us to equip our state-of-the-art training centre, which replicates an actual estate or letting agency, but also gives a strong message to employers that Bloom apprentices are not only technically competent, but also fully conversant with the products, services and systems of major suppliers to the estate and lettings industry. This enables apprentices to deliver added value to their new employer."
