How can Housing and Property Management work for you?
Most housing and property management roles are customer facing and include being responsible for the creation and sustainment of successful tenancies in the private and social rented housing sectors.
Our apprenticeships are therefore designed to enhance technical knowledge across a broad range of housing practices, including policy, law and professional practice, and include the capability for us to tailor bespoke programmes that cater for either individual or business specific needs.
The CIH will also be conducting End Point Assessment and accreditation for us and we will therefore now be able to offer officially recognised qualifications.
Housing and property management apprenticeships usually last between 18-24 months and provide a natural progression into the following roles:
- Generic or specialist Housing Officer or Neighbourhood Officer (for example for anti-social behaviour, resident involvement, tenancy sustainment, homelessness, repairs and sheltered housing)
- Neighbourhood Co-ordinator / Advisor
- Lettings Officer / Allocations Officer / Tenancy Officer / Income Management Officer
- Leasehold Management Officer
- Private Sector Housing Officer
- Strategic Housing Officer
- Property Manager
- Negotiator/Senior Negotiator
Entry requirements: Employers will identify any relevant entry requirements through selection. Apprentices without Level 2 English and maths will need to achieve this level prior to completion of their Apprenticeship.
Professional Body Alignment and progression: On completion of the apprenticeship, apprentices will be able to join the following:
- Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) at Member level.
- Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) at Associate Level.
- Institute of Residential Property Management (IRPM) at Associate Level.
