Countrywide Surveying Services is proud to announce the outstanding success of all 87 surveying trainees who have been awarded Associates of RICS.

The team are delighted to see all 87 trainees fully qualified and now working hard in the field, providing great service to all customers. An exceptional first time pass rate of 90% was achieved across all three cohorts of the trainee programme, against the overall industry level of just below 70%.

The introduction of the Countrywide Surveying Services trainee programme in October 2013, was a proactive approach towards addressing the increasing demand for surveyors to complete valuations and assessments for the transaction process after the housing market began to pick up earlier that year. Countrywide is excited to experience the positive impact the trainees are having on the business, both now and as the market improves.

Commenting on this achievement, Paul Wareham, Director of Field Operations said:

“I am absolutely delighted to report that all of our trainees are qualified associates of RICS. The level of success we have achieved during this programme is not only testament to the sheer hard work and determination of the trainees themselves but also the quality of the training.

“It’s great to see all our trainees working in the field and spread across a wide geographic area, predominantly in the South East and London but also in Scotland and Northern Ireland. We know they will have a positive impact on the business as the market improves and we look forward to seeing their careers develop.”

Countrywide Surveying Services has worked closely with its clients to demonstrate and agree the qualification process along with the control structure that has been implemented for all qualified team members.

Each of the trainees has had the benefit of being mentored by local experienced surveyors during their training and even when qualified they have been subject to further rigours of the comprehensive Countrywide specific competency framework, which is over and above the base requirements of the RICS qualification. Countrywide competency is also tested by an in-house professional interview with senior staff before any fully supervised fee earning is sanctioned.
