There are are plenty of opportunities to make a friends as an apprentice, for example if you apply to join a bigger organisation taking on a group of apprentices. All our apprentices attend a group induction at the beginning of their programme and you will likely meet people there. You may also find that your employer previously hired apprentices and they can mentor and guide you.
Beyond your fellow apprentices, you will also benefit from the support of your supervisor, work colleagues, legal assessor and trainer and the wider CLS team. You will receive regular visits or attend events which will give you the opportunity to network.
