Just Mortgages is hosting a series of broker training courses guiding recruits through their CeMap One qualification.

The courses will take place in either Bristol or Cardiff on 15 June depending on how many sign up and where the candidates are from.

The courses will run for four weeks, after which recruits can carry on with more comprehensive training with Just Mortgages’ network Openwork.

John Phillips, group operations director for Just Mortgages and Spicerhaart, said: “Look around any room of mortgage brokers and you’ll see the average age tends to be somewhere in the 50s.

“It is essential that we bring some new blood into the industry to take the profession forward, or in ten years’ time we will be facing a woeful shortage of advisers.

“The industry as a whole needs to up its game, but Just Mortgages is determined to lead the charge and play its part by setting up these training academies.

“The initial plan is for four academies this year, but we will expand on this if the demand is there.”

Other courses will be held in Bedford, London and Sheffield.

The brokerage is aiming to put at least 25 people through the courses this year and more if there is sufficient demand.

Previous applicants have been people changing careers, mums going back to work and young people.
