Mortgage Adviser Apprenticeship Programme

Buying a home is possibly the biggest purchase anyone will make in their lifetime, which is why people rely on the expertise of mortgage advisers to help them find the best possible deal on a mortgage and other products related to purchasing a property.

Mortgage advisers must confidently navigate this market and the associated products, to deliver the best advice and outcome for clients.


Why become a mortgage adviser?

Once you’re qualified, you’ll be on a path for a highly rewarding career, helping people achieve their property goals.

Where your career takes you, is within your control. You may want to work for a large corporation such as a bank, be part of a smaller firm, or set up your own firm.

Operating in a highly regulated environment, you’ll be challenged with remaining at the forefront of industry advances, and have a life-long passion for professional development.

You’ll be required to obtain professional qualifications, demonstrate a high degree of integrity, and adhere to a code of ethics.

Whether you’re looking to upskill in your current career, or you’re totally new to the world of mortgage advice, the Mortgage Adviser Apprenticeship Programme is the flexible route to achieving your goals.

Successful candidates must commit to the full study programme, and must spend 20% of their working week studying towards the apprenticeship standard with a structured learning plan. The remaining 80% of the working week will be spent learning on-the-job skills required to pass the course.
