Qualifications and learning are more important than ever in today's incredibly fast moving lettings industry which has seen dramatic changes over the last couple of years, and NFoPP Awarding Body offer some of the best qualifications in the business.
But don't just take our word for it. Here we speak to a recent success, Abby Barnett from Barbers who passed her Level 3 Technical Award in Residential Letting & Property Management last month.
We asked Abby what achieving the qualification means to her:
Abby said: “I am delighted to have achieved the Level 3 Technical Award in Residential Letting & Property Management. I began working as a Property Manager at Barbers last year, having never worked in an Estate Agency before, and the Technical Award has been an invaluable part of my training.
“The course has given me a firm knowledge of legal principles and guidelines for industry standards, leaving me confident in providing professional, current advice to all of our clients. Personally managing over 250 residential properties across Shropshire has been a challenge, but ARLA and NFoPP have supported me through my training and I am very proud to receive my certificate.”
Professional accreditation is part of the Barbers ethos, something reflected in our receipt of the inaugural NFoPP “Employment Qualifications Ambassador Award” in May 2016, and the encouragement received by my colleagues is something for which I am extremely grateful. I will certainly be looking to undertake the Level 4 Technical Award to further improve my knowledge!”
Mike Arthan, Managing Director at Barbers said of Abby's success:
“Everyone at Barbers is extremely proud of Abby for her success and it has been a pleasure to watch her continuing personal and professional development over the past year. We firmly believe in the importance of the Technical Awards provided by the NFoPP as they have helped Abby and many of our other staff to realise their full potential within the industry.
All Barbers employees are encouraged to take an NFoPP qualification and in the wake of our success at the NFoPP awards, several members of staff are now beginning their Level 4 Technical Awards. Anyone looking to further their career and hone their professional expertise should speak to the NFoPP who will support and guide them through process of becoming a qualified industry expert.”
