It is not only a personal achievement but also a mark of professionalism and trust; it provides reassurance to tenants and landlords dealing with McCartneys that the agency adheres to the highest professional standards, and that employees are qualified and knowledgeable letting agents.”

Melfyn Williams, Chair of the Governing Body, adds: “The NFoPP QCF Level 3 Technical Award is a regulated qualification ideal for candidates wanting to improve existing knowledge in the key areas related to residential letting and property management.  The NFoPP Awarding Body is committed to raising standards within the residential letting and property management sector through the provision of accredited, nationally recognised qualifications, such as the Technical Award Kate has achieved.”

David Cox, Managing Director of ARLA, concludes: “I congratulate Kate on her achievement of the Level 3 qualification and am pleased to welcome her to ARLA membership. 
“ARLA strives for better regulation in the private rented sector; with the support of letting agents across the UK recognising the need for higher standards and integrity in the sector, gaining an NFoPP qualification counts as a real stamp of professionalism and supports the drive for better practice within the industry.”
