The Next Generation of Estate and Letting Agents

We were pleased to hear this week, that a dedicated course is being run for school leavers, interested in working as an estate or letting agent. This course will help younger agents, follow the correct procedures within the industry and give younger agents, extended knowledge of the industry, before they even begin as an agent.

The course will run for one year and is aimed at 16 to 18 year olds, who are interested in the property profession. Currently being taught at New City College, Norwich, if successful the course will be spread to other colleges who are keen to teach it. The full course title is the ‘BTEC Subsidiary Diploma in Business with Property Services’ and will be launched in partnership with local agents Arnold Keys and Rightmove. The course also has the support of the NAEA and ARLA.

This course quite clearly demonstrates how the next generation of estate and letting agents will come about. By training young property professionals, the industry will continue to grow and property professionals will be more aware of regulation procedures that may be introduced. We support this innovative idea, as the next generation of estate and letting agents come about.

It is an exciting time for the industry as this course is introduced. We feel this will benefit the industry in the long run, as agents will become more aware of the industry before they even begin. At VTUK, we believe in supporting every agent from the ground up and believe in establishing the four key drivers for your business at board level. These four key drivers are business continuity, retaining landlords, acquiring new landlords and increasing the profit of each let. We listen, analyse and fully understand your requirements, whether you are a national agent or a new start up. This course will only help every agent as they become more aware of the industry and we will consider this, as we develop our software in years to come.
