What are apprenticeships?

An apprenticeship is a paid job which combines employment and training and is available to anyone entitled to work in the UK. The apprentice gets a nationally recognised qualification on completion.

Upon completion an Apprentice can then apply for membership of The Property Institute and if successful could then take one of our industry-endorsed, Ofqual-recognised qualifications.

Apprenticeships are a unique way to ‘grow your own’; they combine on-the-job training in an organisation with off-the-job learning and provide employers with an effective way of growing their skills base.

  • Hiring apprentices brings a number of benefits to employers:

    • Maintained or improved future skills in the business.
    • Improvements in the goods and services they offer.
    • Improved staff morale.

    According to Centre for Economics and Business research on the economic impact of apprenticeships, there is a net gain to the employer while apprentices train, and a higher output once employed.

  • Being an apprentice also brings benefits:

    • Earn while you learn
    • Receive recognised qualifications
    • Benefit from ongoing and personalised support
    • Gain real work experience
    • Improve your employability
    • Develop your skills
    • Gain independence and respect

    Property management extends beyond day-to-day tasks; it necessitates adeptly overseeing internal teams and possessing strong leadership capabilities. We strongly advise our L4 MIRPM members to contemplate pursuing leadership qualifications to levels 5 & 7.
