What's going on with our Trailblazer?

Friday 06 May 2016

In recent weeks the Trailblazer group has consulted employers in the sector to gather feedback on the apprenticeship standard. The standard details the knowledge, skills and behaviours that the profession would expect a 16-18 year old newcomer to the industry to attain at the end of the one-year apprenticeship programme.

The feedback has been fed into the process and now the standard, letters of employer support and the consultation results that the Trailblazer group have been working on since December have now been formally submitted to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills for the Minister’s approval. 

Within six weeks the Trailblazer group should receive an indication of whether the standard has been approved or whether further work is required.

At this stage we want to thank all those of you who completed the Trailblazer survey, sent in feedback on the standard and letters of support.  All of this supporting material has been incorporated into the submission and contributed to the progress towards raising entry standards across the estate agency sector.

The group is now looking at training and testing packages to deliver the standard. If you would like more information or to be added onto our mailing list please email SonySouthall@nfopp.co.uk
