Jamie completed his Advanced Apprenticeship in the Sale of Residential Property when he started at Billingham Taylor. Here’s what he had to say about the apprenticeship and working with The Gold Standard;
The support and guidance I received from The Gold Standard was exceptional, Nick was great! We had regular visits at convenient times. The content involved in a session was just right. All questions I had were answered and I left every session feeling confident on the previous unit and what I had to do before the next visit with my assessor.
The preparation for my exams was perfect. I was given enough time to revise for each exam thoroughly and meeting with my assessor around a week before the exam allowed me to ask any questions and to go over any topics I was unsure of. It also allowed Nick to identify any common questions or areas included in the exam. I think the past paper exam questions are very good! It gives you an idea about how much you have actually learnt!
I feel the apprenticeship has considerably helped me in my job. It has given me extra knowledge that I would not of learnt in the work place, such as structural defects of property and the legislation involved in estate agency. This now allows me to answer any questions a perspective buyer may have confidently, as well as giving me the opportunity to become a member of the NAEA.
