Nominations for the Propertymark Qualifications Awards 2019 are now open

Wednesday 26 June 2019

The awards, for learners in the property sector, are the chance to celebrate colleagues or employers you believe deserve recognition.

Returning for their 8th year, the Propertymark Qualifications Awards are exclusively open to those who have achieved or are currently working towards, their Propertymark Qualifications Awards and Certificates. This year the nominees will be treated to an intimate ceremony at the House of Lords, surrounded by leaders in the industry.

“We’re very excited to be returning to the House of Lords” says Head of Qualifications, Michael Smith, “and for our top learners who have put hours of time and effort into furthering their personal development, a nomination for a Propertymark Qualifications Award is surely the biggest compliment they can receive.”

Most members of ARLA Propertymark, NAEA Propertymark or NAVA Propertymark will already be familiar with Propertymark Qualifications, as obtaining one is part of their membership criteria; these awards celebrate those who have gone above and beyond when studying and achieving their qualification.

The three nomination categories are the Rising Star, Learner of the Year and Employer Champion, with each award celebrating those that are committed to their personal development and use their knowledge to benefit themselves, their role and their colleagues.

Other awards to be presented at the event will be the Sales, Letting and Auctioneering Candidates of the Year. These awards are given for the highest marks achieved across a full Propertymark Qualifications Award or Certificate in their relevant discipline.

The awards this year are sponsored by MOL, with the awards ceremony taking place on the 23 October 2019 at the Cholmondeley Room, House of Lords. Nominations are now open; to make a nomination or to find out more head to propertymarkqualifications.co.uk/awards-event/
