Goldsmith Williams quartet graduate

The licences were presented yesterday to Debby Cassapi, Shirley Turner, Cheryl Halsall and Richard Espley by Victor Olowe, Chief Executive of the Council for Licensed Conveyancers. The 4 members of staff took 3 years to obtain their conveyancing qualifications and have studied via an in-house course run by Goldsmith Williams’ own training academy, Osmosis.

John Jones, Director for Learning & Development at Goldsmith Williams and head of the Osmosis training academy, said: “I am delighted, not just for the 4 staff who have qualified as licensed conveyancers, but also for Goldsmith Williams which has given its full commitment to the development of an in-house training programme. This is an excellent way for staff to further their careers by obtaining appropriate qualifications and skills.”

The course, which is dedicated to the memory of a past member of staff, Shelly Prout, is currently being undertaken by a further 13 staff, 5 of whom are in their second year and 8 of whom have started their first year.

Chris Williams, Partner at Goldsmith Williams, said: “Congratulations to all those who have received their licenses and a very special thank you to John Jones who has developed and runs our in-house academy. I would also like to thank Trevor Reese who has helped as course tutor. Goldsmith Williams is fully committed to helping staff develop their careers through professional training and this was a very proud moment for all the partners in the firm.”
