A former Training 2000 apprentice is taking her career to the next level as potentially the youngest Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors Trainee in the UK.

Regional Buildings Assessments (RBA), in Rishton, initially hired Kelsey as a business administration apprentice to support the surveying practice, which offers specialist property surveys, and its operation in the office.

After completing both Level 2 & 3 within her apprenticeship, the business recognized her potential and saw the opportunity for Kelsey to progress onto an industry qualification and she is currently 6 months into a degree level diploma in residential surveying & valuation through a Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors approved qualification route (RICS).

RBA Principal Partner and Kelsey’s manager Steve Roberts said that in his experience within the industry, this makes Kelsey almost certainly the youngest surveying trainee in the UK and will make her the youngest RICS approved residential surveyor in the country once qualified in 2018.

Steve added:

“It was fantastic to see Kelsey grow throughout her apprenticeship and really help the business at the same time as developing skills and confidence.

“We are as excited as Kelsey that she is now taking on this fantastic opportunity to become a qualified surveyor, and just goes to show the skills she gained through her apprenticeship together with the great transferable qualities, acumen and ethos Kelsey developed with Training 2000.”

“It is also a testament to the team at Training 2000 that we have in the last few months taken on a new level 2 business administration apprentice – whom Kelsey is mentoring.”

Kelsey said:

“My time at Training 2000 accelerated my career development and provided me with key skills for the workplace – both in my current role and the one I’m moving into with my surveying qualification.”
