Developing new surveying talent in Wales and the West of England
Sava is taking its successful Diploma in Residential Surveying & Valuation into Wales, with its first Welsh based intake starting in October 2018 in Newport. It’s part of Sava’s plans to hold more regional courses, to ensure that surveying talent can be developed across England, Wales and Scotland.
Sava offers the Diploma in Residential Surveying and Valuation, the only vocational route into the residential surveying profession that is fully backed by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
Sava developed the course to help bridge a gap in the market for qualified surveyors and offers those without a relevant undergraduate degree the opportunity to pursue a residential surveying career. With a blend of face-to-face and online learning, Sava opens the door to prestigious RICS membership without the need to commit to full-time study. The course is specially crafted so that it directly satisfies the requirements for direct entry into RICS at Associate member level (AssocRICS) and provides valuable practical experience to ensure its graduates are both confident and competent in their roles.
Announcing the Welsh course venue Sava’s Director Andy Flook said:
“To date we’ve been running about 5 intakes across the year, in Manchester, Birmingham, Surrey and two intakes in Milton Keynes. With running more intakes throughout the year, we give more choice and more convenience to our customers. Speaking to top surveying employers we hear that because of the age profile of existing surveyors, there is a long-term shortage of surveying resource in Wales and the West of England, and so our Newport intake is a response to this, to make it as convenient as possible for people to consider a career in residential surveying”.
The Newport intake starts on 31 October and Sava will be running several 2-hour Open Events where potential surveyors can find out what the residential surveying profession offers, and whether the Sava Diploma is right for them. The first event is on 19 July and you can book on our website: Find Out More.
The Open Events and the Diploma course itself will be held at Coldra Court, part of the Celtic Manor resort, with proximity to the M4.
