Mortgage Advisor Apprenticeships

A career as a mortgage advisor is certainly rewarding, as you will be assisting people through some of the biggest changes of their lives: moving into a new home.

The Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice (CeMAP) is the first essential step to becoming a mortgage advisor, and being able to explain complex issues with clarity and confidence. The level 2 apprenticeship will not only allow you to achieve this qualification, but will also give you a practical, in-depth understanding of the industry.

With experience in the role, you can progress onto the level 3 apprenticeship and gain a CII Certificate in Mortgage Advice, or the or Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice (CeMAP) from the London Institute of Banking and Finance to further strengthen your skills. Depending on your place of employment, this means you could start your career in a role as a mortgage broker, mortgage paraplanner, or mortgage advisor at a bank, building society or firm.
