CILEx Law School students employed as legal apprentices on the Advanced Apprenticeship in Legal Services have delivered great results in the June 2015 exam session, which were announced today.
The pass rate at CILEx Level 3 was 87%, which compares with an overall pass rate for CILEx Level 3 of 69%. Of those apprenticeship passes, 78% were at the grade of distinction or merit.
These students are employed by CILEx Law School’s client organisations, learning workplace skills alongside their formal studies.
All eight apprentices who sat the CILEx Level 3 Law of Tort exam at client organisation Clyde & Co achieved a distinction. Caroline Walsh, Head of Legal Trainee Recruitment and Development, said: “We are absolutely thrilled with these results which demonstrate the commitment of these young people. They also show the value of the apprenticeship route, where workplace experience underpins the theoretical legal knowledge being gained through the apprentices’ CILEx study.”
Kim Morrison, Academic Director at CILEx Law School said: “We are really delighted with the performance of our students taking CILEx Level 3 courses as part of their Advanced Apprenticeship in Legal Services. The results that they have achieved are a reflection of the hard work that the apprentices have put in to their studies. The commitment they have shown in successfully combining full-time work with study will stand them in excellent stead as they progress in their careers.”
