How to become a property sales advisor

There are several routes to becoming a property sales advisor. There are no specific entry requirements, but you could do a college course, an apprenticeship, on-the-job training or apply to an employer directly.  

You should explore these routes to find out which is the right one for you. Although some of these options have certain qualification requirements, many employers are more interested in people who are enthusiastic, willing to learn and can follow instructions.

You may need a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card to work on a construction site.

College/training provider 

You could take a college course to give you some relevant skills, such as a Level 2 or 3 Diploma in Business and Administration. 

You’ll need:

  • 2 or more GCSEs at grades 9 to 3 (A* to D), or equivalent (level 2 course)
  • 4 - 5 GCSEs at grades 9 to 4 (A* to C), or equivalent (level 3 course).

Apprenticeship

An apprenticeship is a good way into the construction industry. 

You could complete an intermediate apprenticeship to become a property sales advisor.

An intermediate business administration apprenticeship takes around two years to complete.  If your employer can provide you with the right experience, you can progress onto a Level 3 (advanced) qualification.

You’ll need:

  • Some GCSEs (or equivalent), usually including English and maths (intermediate apprenticeship)
  • 5 GCSEs (or equivalent) at grades 9 to 4 (A* to C), including English and maths (advanced apprenticeship).

Apprenticeships are open to anyone over the age of 16. As an apprentice, you’ll be fully employed by your company and expected to work a minimum of 30 hours a week. Your time will be split between on-the-job experience and a college or training provider.
