We would like to start by saying thank you to everyone who has completed our qualification survey; it has proved very insightful and we have used your responses to help shape the qualification frameworks.

As we move forward with the qualification development, the unknowns are gradually becoming clearer and we hope to have all the information that’s important to you, such as costs and payment plans, course structure, and course content, finalised and ready to announce in the very near future.

So we are going to hit the road! We will be holding a series of road shows across the country. These will be hosted by Hilary Grayson and NES Managing Director, Austin Baggett. Hilary has been with SAVA for over 13 years and before that worked at RICS in the Residential Faculty. She knows the profession intimately, was the lead writer for the new qualifications and, through her connections within RICS, has been able to get them formally recognised.

We would like to invite you and your colleagues along to share in this event. This is an exciting opportunity for you to hear the latest developments and to raise any burning questions you might have. We cannot promise we will have all of the answers, but we are confident that we will have most of them!

The event is free and the aim is to provide you with as much information as possible before the qualifications are officially released. Drinks and nibbles will be provided and there will be ample opportunity to network with other professionals in the industry.

Road shows will be available at the following dates and times (venues to be confirmed) and will be available to book on our website later this week:

  • Wednesday 19th March (5.30-8pm: Milton Keynes)
  • Thursday 20th March (5.30-8pm: Manchester)
  • Monday 24th March (5.30-8pm: Birmingham)
  • Wednesday 2nd April (5.30-8pm: Wetherby, Yorks)
  • Thursday 3rd April (5.30-8pm: Bristol)

If you would like to attend, pencil us into your diary and we will send you details of how to book when they are available on the website.

Why not come along and see what all the fuss is about?
