An annual celebration of apprenticeships, coordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service, brings the whole apprenticeship community together to celebrate the impact of apprenticeships has on individuals, businesses and the economy.

National Apprenticeship Week 2019 (NAW 2019) is showcasing all the incredible opportunities doing an apprenticeship can bring - both for individuals ‘firing up’ their careers and for employers ‘blazing a trail’ in their business and reaping the benefits of employing an apprentice.

There is daily activity, featuring a selection of events, announcements and good news stories and there is still time for people to get involved as well as joining the conversation to share NAW activities on social media using tags @Apprenticeships and hashtags #NAW2019 and #BlazeATrail.

NAW 2019 is aimed at showing the benefits of apprenticeships and the huge number of high-quality apprenticeship opportunities available at all levels around the country in a wide variety of sectors, including Estate Agency.

Junior Estate Agency Apprenticeship Standard

In October 2018, NAEA Propertymark launched a Level 2 Junior Estate Agent Apprenticeship Standard in England. It is a customer-facing role with the apprentice having responsibility for providing administrative support to secure successful property sales and apprentice may work in different areas of estate agency. In all cases, the apprentice will be required to understand and follow contractual, statutory and legal restrictions, and client confidentiality and will be working under supervision within the wider organisation.

NAEA Propertymark Student Membership

All apprentices will be eligible to apply for student membership and will then have three years to achieve a recognised qualification and upgrade their membership. Joining as a student member will help to build your career.

Propertymark Qualifications is an End Point Assessment Organisation

To ensure the apprentice achieves the goals of the standard they must pass an end-point assessment carried out by an independent, government-approved end-point assessment organisation (EPAO). The EPAO will conduct a full assessment of the apprentice's skills and will inform the Education and Skills Funding Agency when an apprentice passes their end-point assessment. Propertymark Qualifications is an approved end-point assessment organisation.
