Feb 9 2010 by Henryk Zientek, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
TEN employees at estate agency Bramleys have achieved NVQ qualifications in residential property services.
The employees undertook six to nine months of study, during which they were asked to show their skills and document and provide evidence of their work.
They also had to complete project as well as sit a series of key skill tests.
Seven of them also sat a four-unit technical award exam, which they passed – enabling them to be accredited as members of the National Association of Estate Agents.
The course covered such topics as health and safety, general law, law relating to residential property sales, practice relating to residential property sales, property appraisals and basic construction.
Paul Keighley, residential partner at Bramleys, said: “Legislation constantly changes and it is important for us as a company to ensure that our staff are trained to the highest possible standards.
“There was a huge amount of work involved for all the staff concerned and we are immensely proud of their 100% success rate.”
Amanda Rudd, sales and marketing manager, said: “When this was first introduced to us we knew it could only be of benefit and was undertaken enthusiastically. “
James Parkinson, senior valuer at the Huddersfield office, added: “I found the course both challenging and rewarding and immensely enjoyed increasing my knowledge of the property market.”
