Apprenticeships

We work with a wide range of employers to deliver apprenticeship schemes. Whether you are looking to leverage your apprenticeship levy payments, meet CSR objectives or aiming to develop talent from within, our clients find a range of benefits to employing apprentices and supporting their progress through the legal profession.

Our current apprenticeship programmes include:

Set at A-level equivalent, this programme is ideal for new recruits or current members of staff who have completed an intermediate apprenticeship or have some prior experience in a business or administration role.

  • 18-month programme
  • Suitable for school leavers or current support/process staff to be trained as administrators
  • Suitable for those whose role requires ownership of some processes or procedures rather than being solely task-based

This programme is appropriate for candidates who have already studied law and worked (or are working) in a legal environment, including law graduates and those with a CILEX Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law and Practice.

Anyone embarking on the CLE Apprenticeship must be in a role which meets CILEX Regulation’s requirements for qualifying employment during the final years of their apprenticeship.
