Call for partners in Trailblazer property management apprentice pilot

19 January 2017

Property management company Rendall & Rittner is calling for more companies to join a collaborative group to champion apprenticeships.

Formed last year, other group members include Catch 22, the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) and the Institute of Residential Property Management (IRPM).

Aims of the group include delivery of a new Level 3 apprenticeship pilot scheme in housing and property management.

This will require trainees to gain knowledge of general law, leasehold finance, land and the built environment, along with the requirements of customer service in the sector.

Four workplace assessments will also be included in the apprenticeship, culminating with a project-based submission and panel interview through the CIH assessment gateway.

Apprentices will have their progress monitored to ensure they meet the aims of the course and comply with the standard and assessment plan.

Rendall & Rittner managing director Richard Daver said the sector will "benefit hugely" from the pilot scheme.

"It's vital that young people are offered alternative and effective ways of learning industry standard practices, while earning and gaining a qualification.

"We urge those interested, both future apprenticeships and other property companies, to get involved," he said.

The group also plans to launch Levels 2 and 4 of the Housing and Property Management scheme to the private sectors and the wider public in the future.

Those wishing to register interest can do so by emailing

This April sees the introduction of the government's Apprenticeship Levy for businesses as part of its aim to see 3m apprenticeships by 2020.
