WHAT IS THE 'ONE LEARNER - ONE ESTATE AGENCY' YOUTH EMPOWERMENT BRIGADE PROGRAMME?

The 'One Learner - One Estate Agency' Youth Empowerment Brigade Programme is aimed at placing intern estate agents in the service of registered estate agency enterprises so that they may act under the supervision and control of a suitably qualified mentor as they take their journey from Intern Estate Agent to Professional Practitioner in Real Estate and finally Master Practitioner in Real Estate.

STRUCTURE OF THE 'ONE LEARNER - ONE ESTATE AGENCY' YOUTH EMPOWERMENT BRIGADE PROGRAMME

  • Upon completion of the 12 month internship period and after having been certificated against the NQF Level 4 real estate qualification, intern estate agents will be required to enrol for and pass the Professional Designation Examination for non-principal estate agents (PDE 4). Interns estate agents having met these requirements will receive a status upgrade to full status non-principal estate agent;
