Propertymark has revealed the nine estate agency industry winners at its awards ceremony in London designed to highlight the sekctor’s training and qualification stars.
This year’s recipients of the industry gongs include agents who are learning their trade, existing employees upgrading their skills, employers and training providers.
Learner of the Year – Eva Ferdinando from Avery Estate Agents
Rising Star – Puja Mehra from 99home
Employer of the Year – Charlie Perdios from Anthony Pepe
Lettings Candidate of the Year – Poppy Field from Stags
Sales Candidate of the Year – James Cardon from John German
Auctioneering Candidate of the Year – Grace Julier from Hotlotz
The awards also recognised the increasing number of people taking up Level 4 Qualifications and the start of Propertymark Qualifications’ Apprenticeship Assessment Service.
The two winners from this field were:
Level 4 Candidate of the Year – Naomi Murdoch from Dexters
Apprentice of the Year: Darcy Halliday from Leaders
Lifelong Achievement – Pauline Makepeace
Pauline is one of the property sector’s long-standing educationalists and supporters of qualifications.
With a career in higher education Pauline has worked tirelessly with Propertymark Qualifications and its predecessor bodies to develop, deliver and assess professional qualifications for property agents and auctioneers. Most recently Pauline has acted as Chair of Examiners.
Michael Smith (pictured), Head of Propertymark Qualifications says: “This year’s candidates have shown incredible determination to succeed over what has been a challenging year for many of us, whether personal or professional.
Despite the effects of the pandemic, lockdowns, and furlough more than 2,300 learners have completed a qualification since we last gathered with over 12,000 signing up for one.
In addition, we have seen over 270 apprentices register for their end point assessment and over ninety remote apprenticeship assessments conducted since we launched the service in July 2020.
I am very proud to see such an appetite for professional development within the sector and it was wonderful to be able to celebrate and recognise the success of our learners in person again.”
