Interested in pursuing a career in NSW’s real estate industry, but not sure where to begin?

Getting the right skills and knowledge through a real estate traineeship in NSW is the best way to learn on the job and get hands-on experience for your future real estate career.

We’ve asked our CEO at Entry Education, Matt, who has worked in vocational education for 25 years across setting up and executing traineeship and on-the-job training programs, to provide some valuable insights on real estate traineeships in NSW. Matt has worked with industry giants such as Toll, WesTrac, Visy, David Jones, Super Retail Group, just to name a few.

What are real estate traineeships?

Real estate traineeships are work-study arrangements where individuals can gain both practical experience and formal training through a registered training organisation.

According to Matt, learning on the job through a traineeship is simply the best education students can undertake. What makes them even better is when these programs are supported by the government to help students and businesses financially invest in best practice learning.

Traineeships in NSW are offered under the NSW Government’s Smart and Skilled program, which provides subsidies for the training courses, helping applicants gain employment and advance in their chosen profession.

There are two available courses for real estate traineeships in NSW:

Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice (CPP41419)
Certificate IV in Finance and Mortgage Broking (FNS40821)

Benefits of traineeships for businesses in NSW

Many of the projects that trainees are required to complete can be done in their workplace in real life situations. What this means is that trainees will work with key people in the business to understand their required roles and responsibilities, equipping them to quickly understand the industry and grow into potential stars of the business. Employers will work with students on projects to assist them to adopt industry best practice for their training and assessment.

Businesses can also benefit from both State and Commonwealth Government Incentives.

Matt shared with us that the commonwealth government incentives will be reviewed by July 1st, 2024 but regardless of the commonwealth government incentive, the state government benefits and funding support ensures this will be the best value opportunity for any employee looking to complete the qualification.
