Propertymark Qualifications celebrate successful year with four top students

On Tuesday 15 December, Propertymark Qualifications hosted an online event to celebrate the fantastic achievement of four students, who, over the course of 2019/2020, achieved Distinction in their Level 4 Certificate in Residential Letting and Property Management, one of the highest-level qualifications awarded by Propertymark Qualifications.

It has undoubtedly been a hard year across the UK but, despite the challenges, the four candidates, Frances Boyt (Chestertons), Naomi Murdoch (Dexters), Melissa Knox (Knight Frank), and Mikolaj Jachowicz (Jorgensen Turner), were all able to attain an average mark of 70 per cent or higher across all six units of their qualification, each with a two-hour written exam.

Along with Michael Smith, Head of Propertymark Qualifications, the four candidates were joined by Tim Green, Chair of Propertymark Qualifications Governing Body, ARLA Propertymark’s Vice President, David Votta, and Tim Balcon, Propertymark CEO, who virtually presented the candidates with their certificates and awards while congratulating them on their hard work.

 

We appreciate that it has been a challenging and difficult year for many of us, both at home and work, but what has shone through during this time is agents’ commitment to professional development and the pursuit of qualifications. There aren’t many candidates that achieve Distinction, so in the absence of this year’s annual Propertymark Qualifications Awards event, we wanted to take the opportunity to spotlight their success and achievements and to celebrate them with the wider property sector.

One of my key targets as Propertymark CEO is to raise the professional status of property professionals so they are looked at in the same light as other professionals. One of the most effective ways we can do this is by increasing the number of qualified agents across the country.

As recently qualified Level 4 students, Frances, Naomi, Melissa and Mikolaj will serve as exceptional role models for a highly qualified profession and are leading the way in raising their professional profile.

Thinking about becoming qualified?

Last year, the RoPA Working Group recommended all staff delivering ‘reserved activities’ employed within the residential agency business should at minimum hold a qualification at Level 3 or above.

Propertymark Qualifications offer both Level 3 and Level 4 qualifications that will meet the requirements of the RoPA Working Group recommendations. Both are Ofqual regulated and are available for sales and lettings.
