National apprenticeships and training organisation Positive Outcomes has launched a new professional apprenticeship based qualification for estate agents.

Backed by the Awarding Body for the Built Environment (ABBE), NFOPP and Asset Skills, the Estate Agency Award is based on a Level 2 Intermediate Apprenticeship and Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship training framework.

The programme is being launched in the South West and Positive Outcomes plans to extend its availability across the UK from next year. The Award is designed to help ambitious estate agents and property professionals  boost their professional qualifications, as Sarah Breadner, Positive Outcomes’ Training Team Manager who is heading the Awards’ launch in the South West, explains: “This is a significant development for estate agents seeking to enhance and improve their professional expertise and customer service skills. The programme is designed to give them an edge by delivering practical training on the key aspects of the estate agency profession, and the skills to give their clients the very best service and advice when selling, buying, leasing or renting a property.
