Fantastic training. No idea how anyone would pass without it!

The book is like the bible and the sessions informative.

RA, international property consultancy

Jon and Viv were generous with their time and put in a lot of effort to ensure people felt calmer and were savvy in revision techniques.

Very useful booklet and very useful going through people’s submissions over zoom to question spot.

Partner, Head of People & Purpose, a major surveying practice

We approached APC Success in the run up to an RICS APC Interview session due to performance issues with our previous external APC support provider. At short notice, APC Success stepped in to deliver invaluable, focused, revision sessions to our candidates assisting us in securing a 100% pass rate.

Following that initial training session, APC Success then worked with us to develop a training programme that meets both our company and our candidates’ needs. That includes sessions with our entire cohort through to more focused, smaller, progression and revision sessions.

Feedback from our candidates is positive and the training delivered is complementary to the training that our company provides for our candidates internally. A further positive for the business is that we get a third party perspective on the progression of our candidates. This useful feedback on candidate progress, and suggestions for areas of development has also enabled us to target project work for our candidates to ensure they gain the breadth and depth of experience required as part of their wider APC training.

On several occasions we have also used APC Success as a sounding board around APC competency requirements and APC processes and they have always been helpful and prompt in their responses. As such, I would highly recommend APC Success to other organisations who are seeking support for their APC candidates.

Learning & Development Advisor, Savills

APC Success have designed bespoke training programmes for all of our RICS APC candidates in the UK. They deliver their highly interactive sessions with enthusiasm and passion, encouraging all delegates to get involved.

The delegates are at the core of all their sessions whether that be a small or a large group. They are attuned to their needs as a group and as individuals, adapting format and content accordingly.

The design and delivery are always of the highest standard highlighting their professionalism and experience.

APC Success get to know each individual they work with, understanding their individual needs, motivators and challenges. They go above and beyond both inside and outside their sessions. Our candidates often contact them with queries and they are always happy to assist, even outside working hours. Our candidates trust and respect both Viv and Miles and feedback is consistently excellent.

The training materials provided are high quality and bespoke for the various sessions.

Presentations are not heavily relied upon during sessions, instead they are used as a framework with more focus on delegate participation. This has proved to be more beneficial for the candidates and offers a greater level of interaction and discussion.

In terms of technical knowledge both Viv and Miles offer a high standard service. The printed revision materials are highly regarded by our candidates and offer additional support.

APC Success are extremely well organised and all materials are received well in advance of the sessions.

At Savills we have a very high success rate for APC candidates and we thank APC Success for being an integral part of that. The structure and support they offer ensures candidates are kept on track and always have support when they need it.

Importantly, when our candidates aren’t successful first time round APC Success work closely with them to identify development areas and support them in those areas. APC Success provide honest and thorough feedback to the HR and L&D team on each delegate that attends their sessions. That feedback covers positive areas and development areas for each candidate. This valuable feedback enables the HR team to follow up on additional support, additional experience required and any personal support that may be needed such as confidence building.

We thoroughly enjoy having Viv and Miles as

Learning & Development Manager, British Land

I have worked with Miles Keeping and the APC Success team for a number of years and I have no hesitation in recommending their services.

At British Land we actively employ new talent from outside the real estate industry to broaden the diversity of our workforce and to reflect the people that live, work, shop and visit our properties. This means that they may not be familiar with the working of REITs or indeed how the sector works generally.

Miles works closely and collaboratively with us to deliver our ‘Introduction to Property’ programme. The content and materials are first class and he uses real case studies of some of British Land’s assets to ensure that the experience is focused and relevant. The sessions are always very engaging and he manages to address the individual needs of delegates regardless of their experience of seniority and in any size group. He is also happy to take follow up questions and share information outside of them too.

We also engage with Miles to support our Graduate and Apprentice programmes where he runs bespoke sessions and also offers one-to-one support for our grads studying for their APC qualifications. He provides feedback about the learning needs of delegates where appropriate too.

Professional and personable and he adds real value to our learning offer.
