TPI Year in Review 2023

18 December 2023

Following another busy year, The Property Institute (TPI) enters 2024 with a growing community of dedicated Company and Individual members who uphold the highest levels of industry standards. Alongside a steady growth in membership, TPI has also enjoyed increased uptake of its training, qualifications, and events.

Membership Growth

Our Company membership has grown by an impressive 7%, with a total of 329 full members. Individual membership has also experienced significant growth, reaching a total of 6,269, an annual rise of 8%. Furthermore, the number of Individual members who are working towards or are already qualified to Level 2 has reached 90%.

Qualifications

Progress of our qualifications pathway is also exemplified by over 1,000 total awarded qualifications over the past year, as Individual members continue to progress up the levels. The Level 2 Foundation Course & Exam in Leasehold Management had a total of 685 awarded qualifications, the Level 3 Association Course & Exam in Leasehold Management climbed to 213 and 118 members achieved the Level 4 Member Course and Exam in Leasehold Management in the past 12 months alone. Over 200 TPI professionals have now achieved one of our Build to Rent (BTR) qualifications and we now have 50 graduates for our new Professional Diploma in Property Factoring in Scotland.

Looking ahead to 2024, our aim is to see more members progressing to the Level 4 (MIRPM) qualification. To help facilitate this, we have upgraded our learning platform with AI tutors, engaging visuals and streamlined processes to make studying for our qualifications more convenient than ever.

Training

In addition to growing our qualifications programme, we take pride in the growth of our training offering, which has seen a remarkable 55% increase this year. This achievement is a testament to an array of new courses, the dedication of our training team, and the expertise of our tutors. Throughout 2023, the team delivered a total of 53 full-day courses (6 hours), 23 half-day courses (3 hours), and 15 webinars (2 hours), 10 online exams, and 36 online preparation workshops, engaging a combined audience of 2,486 Company and Individual members. This represents a significant leap from the previous year and with a large amount of new training courses already confirmed for 2024, we hope to see these figures continue to grow.

TPI requires 15 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) annually for all individual members - the work of the training team has delivered over 14,273 hours of CPD over the past year. Our training programme also focused on courses that looked specifically at the Building Safety Act, including 15 full-day courses, 3 half-day courses, and 8 webinars throughout the year.

Moreover, we continue to promote and expand our Building Safety Hub, a go-to resource for our members to stay updated with the latest building safety news, guidance, and answers.

Events

We have also delivered a series of flagship events this year, including a sold-out Annual Seminar (791 attendees) and Annual Conference (500 attendees). Our Regionals have also gained significant traction, attracting a substantial total attendance of 558 across all five locations nationwide. The ACE Awards celebrate the excellent work of our members across the sector, with the 2023 event being attended by 580 attendees and attracting its highest haul of 120 nominations.

Industry Success

TPI has now completed its first full year following the 2022 merger and has expanded its offering to both sets of members. This also means that we have established a larger voice when speaking to Government and the industry. This year we’ve had over 20 meetings with MPs, including Lee Rowley, the newly appointed Building Safety Minister. We have had over 20 responses to Government consultation papers/calls for evidence in areas including building safety, insurance commissions and leasehold reform. And, had 10 parliamentary questions tabled by MPs on behalf of The Property Institute.

We look forward to building on these achievements and pushing on in the New Year.
