Belvoir Lettings has announced that it has teamed up with the Guild of Lettings & Management to create the Belvoir Training Academy (BTA), which will offer established residential lettings and property management qualifications, tailored to the Belvoir Group.
Two online, industry-recognised accredited courses are being made available – the BTEC Advanced Certificate in Residential Letting (level 3) and the BTEC Professional Diploma in Residential Letting and Management (level 4).
“Students will receive academic recognition for successful completion of the course(s),” explained Belvoir CEO Dorian Gonsalves. “The virtual learning environment provides a programme of e-learning units covering the BTEC level 3 and level 4 programmes. Each unit is made up of pertinent industry material and is designed to enhance the learning experience for students.
“We are confident that the new BTA will be a huge success. This initiative and our continued investment in training will help to ensure that Belvoir Lettings staff and franchise owners become some of the most qualified letting agents in the industry.”
Many Belvoir franchisees have already completed similar courses, and encourage their staff to do so as well. Terry Lucking of Belvoir Peterborough and Belvoir Cambridge said: “I insist that any member of staff joining one of my offices must gain a BTEC from the Guild, as I feel this is so important in today’s market.”
Paul Wallace-Tarry of Belvoir Shrewsbury adds: “These are accredited courses for credible professionals. This is a great USP for Belvoir and something we can all shout about.”
The new BTEC courses will supplement a further 20+ industry training courses and modules that are currently on offer to the franchise network and their staff.
