Llanelli’s Matthew Whitehead run his first half marathon in aid of a fellow staff member:
Our very own Matthew Whitehead decided to take up running in 2018 and signed himself up for the Llanelli half marathon, which is a tough goal for a regular runner let alone a beginner.
With this in mind, Matthew wanted to run to raise funds for something worthwhile. Last year Sam James of our Mumbles lettings office was diagnosed with breast cancer only weeks after discovering she was pregnant with her first child. As a company we decided to give Sam the financial support she would need to be able to recover and enjoy her maternity alongside her partner Luke by fundraising as much as possible. Now baby Maiya is here and is a beautiful, healthy little lady, and Sam herself is also doing so well with her treatments and remaining positive. As Sam’s recovery is not over yet we are still looking to raise what we can for her with further fundraisers planned through the year. If you would like to donate or help fundraise please let us know.
Keeping learning local but global, introducing Dawsons Training Wales:
As most of us in the property industry will know, a regulation was introduced in Wales which applies to all landlords and agents of private residential property. The regulations became enforceable by Rent Smart Wales (RSW) in November 2016, requiring landlords and agents to comply with the new legislation, licensing those who deal with letting and management activities of properties within the private rented sector throughout Wales.
To obtain a license both landlords and agents have to undergo training from a Rent Smart Wales (RSW) approved trainer. This training can be classroom or online based. As a local agency discovered when looking to train new staff, the online course is extremely accessible and suited to an agents working environment, as part of this busy fast moving life we all lead.
With the increase in purchases online in recent years and the now daily use of PayPal for most, the need for a safe, quick and easy transaction at any time of day or night, outside of the usual business hours has become the norm.
There are many bonuses to completing an online training course, with the main benefit being the opportunity to complete the course from any part of the world in your own time, at your own pace. With online courses being easily accessible to all with the click of a button, it makes sense to learn at your leisure.
With this in mind Dawsons Training Wales was born in January 2019. Having acquired a former training provider (A19), Dawsons Training Wales has been set up to ensure the ease of online training for landlords and agents remained available from a local business provider.
The learning portal, designed by Picselli a Swansea based web design company, with the assistance and approval of RSW is one of the most up to date approved online course’s available. At an affordable, and competitive cost for both landlords and agents to complete the course, Dawsons Training Wales has become a success since its birth.
With an easy-to-access website, office hours helpline and around the clock email response, Dawsons Training Wales is very much the ideal training tool for all those requiring an RSW license.
