Learnerships to produce 10, 000 black estate agents


A journey of a thousand miles begins by a single step, so says the ancient Chinese proverb. Similarly, the transformation initiative of the real estate industry has, effectively, been boosted with the launch of the Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB) programme.

Designed to increase the number of black estate agents, the programme has its work cut out with the industry said to be as high as 90% white. One of the ways the industry looks to address this is by one-learner-one-estate-agency programme.

The road ahead is long and winding, but it is just the thing for the industry. The programme’s ambition is to add 10,000 or more black estate agents from now until the end of 2017. According to the EAAB, about 10.5% of SA’s 40,000 estate agents are black.

“The real-estate sector in SA comprises about 10,000 enterprises and if each of these companies take on one intern for a year, the industry could produce 10,000 new trained agents,” EAAB CEO, Bryan Chaplog, says.

The initiative’s timing could not have been perfect, with major players keen to have black representation in their boardrooms.
