Our valuation team has been boosted to its largest number of RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) qualified chartered surveyors and registered valuers, following the successful Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) accreditation of one of our graduate trainees, Matt Collier.
Matt, from Sheffield, first joined Sanderson Weatherall in 2011 on the company’s student placement programme whilst studying a four year RICS accredited sandwich course at Sheffield Hallam University. Following the completion of his degree Matt was appointed in 2013 as full time employee to the graduate training programme in the Leeds valuation team and continued working toward his APC accreditation and chartered status.
The APC process involves practical training and experience which, when combined with academic qualifications, leads to RICS membership. It consists of a period of structured training, culminating with a written submission and a final assessment interview.
Matt said: “The formal training and broad base of experience provided during the graduate training programme at Sanderson Weatherall has been instrumental in helping me to pass the APC at my first attempt.
“I am now working with students on the very same placement programme I was on, only two years ago, to achieve their goals and am looking forward to further enhancing and driving the success of the valuation team in Leeds.”
Our valuation team has a long established national reputation for the quality and range of its services and specialises in the valuation and appraisal of commercial land and property.
The Leeds valuation team now boasts seven qualified valuers, all of which have risen through Sanderson Weatherall’s graduate training programme, along with four graduates, two secretaries and one placement student.
